It is a fact that culture is heavily dependent on language. If we lose our language which is a core part of our identity, then we lose our culture. Language must not be taken for granted neither must it be heavily adulterated. Some countries like Korea, China, Russia but to mention a few, have been able to break to maintain their languages nationally and internationally. A developing country like ours need to take steps in ensuring that we get there one day. It is in view of this that the Bureau of Ghana Languages, Tamale, is organising a public lecture on Friday, November 20, 2015 on the following topics
- The use of the mother tongue as the medium of instruction in our lower primary schools; merits and demerits.
BY; Prof. Apusigah Atia. Dean , Faculty of Education – University for Development Studies Tamale.
- The importance of the mother tongue in Education
By; Alhaji Iddrisu Adam. A retired educationist and former Mayor of Tamale Metro
- The Essence of the mother tongue in a middle income Ghana.
By; Mr. Issahaku Alhassan , Lecturer University of Education, Winneba.
