International Mother Language Day

By Leesa Ostrander

Today for me is Writers Block Extreme Day, yet is is also International Mother Language Day.

This day "has been observed every year since February 2000 to promote linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism." It was designated "to promote the preservation and protection of all languages used by peoples of the world".

Celebrate the day and perserving our unique ability to teach our children and help individual family culture continue.

  1. Very interesting! I always stop and think for a moment whenever I read in the Book of Mormon about Nephi and others as they describe how they were taught in the language of their fathers. So much to think about!
