Daily Prompt : Conversant

In response to prompt : Conversant

I’m indebted to my father who made sure we knew our mother tongue, and spoke it when we were in the house.

Dad encouraged us to learn other languages, it was easy for us siblings, we grew up in a city where  our neighbors children spoke Urdu, this helped us  learn it.

We attended schools where the medium of instruction was English.  We were young didn’t feel it was difficult to learn these languages, it was natural.

Now I feel great knowing, I am conversant with English, Urdu and Bengali. I don’t have to translate these languages before I speak.

Children can learn languages at a young age if they grow up in a city where the neighbors speak a different language which is not their mother tongue!
