Language offers a window into other cultures
I write in reference to Shelina Janmohamed’s opinion piece Languages are tools for communication and understanding,
not fear and division (October 12): every single language is a key that opens the doors of warmth and friendship between people.
They also offer a window into the culture of the people that speak them, which is interesting and highly informative.
The day I picked up a certain level of Swahili while in Africa, a new door opened for me, showing the rich culture of the land. Name withheld by request
