Ever since i was young i was brought up in a very diverse community. We have over 42 tribes in Kenya each with a different language, culture, norms and traditions. This in one way has made me understand why people live and behave the way they are. In a way i think language impacts on someone behavior and also it makes you appreciate each others cultures.
I have in the time tried to learn other languages from our Kenyan tribe though not as fluent as they are. I admire how they teach young people, their food, songs, dress code and traditions. When i joined campus back in 2009 i joined German class. I was inspired to join this class because i had a cousin who studied in German and she would come with her friends from German home. Some of the words to me sounded like broken English lol!! I love how dutch people speak and interact and it made more want to learn more.
What motivates you to learn another language besides yours?
