Mother’s tongue is your native language. It’s the first language you learn as a child. No language can replace your mother’s tongue as it is your native language and it is the first language that you learn and grow up with.
A mother is the first teacher of a child. She gives birth to a child, takes care of the child, and teaches the child everything like speaking, walking, manners, etc. therefore, there’s a special bond and attachment between a mother and her child. The same applies to your mother’s tongue. Mother’s tongue is special because you feel connected to it. It feels yours because you are emotionally attached to it like you are attached to your mother.
You can’t express your feelings, emotions, and views in any other language better than your mother tongue because it comes naturally to you. No matter how fluent you are in a language, you can’t be as fluent as you are in your mother tongue because you don’t have to translate your words to another language while speaking in your mother tongue as you do while speaking in other languages. You may speak in any language, but you think in your mother tongue.
Some people feel shy or inferior in speaking or using their mother tongue. Why do you feel shy or inferior speaking or using your mother tongue? Language is just a way of communication. It is a medium to express yourself. No language is inferior or superior to other languages. You don’t have to worry about what others are thinking about you. You should express yourself in the language in which you feel comfortable and you can express yourself better and freely in your mother tongue than in any other language.
When you communicate in your mother tongue to your family, friends, colleagues, countrymen, or anyone who knows your mother tongue, it feels good, isn’t it? You feel connected with them.
There’s nothing bad in learning and using other languages, but don’t feel shy or inferior in speaking or using your mother tongue. Mother’s tongue keeps you attached to your roots.
Be proud of your mother tongue.
