    2. 100% true. for those that live abroad and got carried away, it's not too late to start teaching them. 1% black and 99% white is still 100% black in the eyes of the world. their skin may be light but their hair will always give them away. it's much better to teach your children who they are and encourage them to embrace their identity than letting skin color fool you. when push comes to shove, oyinbo people know who they will count.

    3. πŸ’―% true. If your child cannot speak your language wetin you gain as a parent?

    4. What is the language doing for them? Is it going to pay their Bills or make dey them the next big thing. A parents gain is that their kids are doing well not if dey can speak language or not

    8. hmmm this is a serious topic. Not only the language plus the culture itself. Sometimes i wonder if it won't be the oyinbos that will later come and be teaching us our own language and culture because some parents including my self, my husbands own is even worst. Some of us don't even have enough knowledge about the language and culture what then are we going to teach the children? But i really wish they could learn. grandparents now are busy working too most of them dn't have time for tales by moonlight again plus majority are leaving the country. so the culture and language are dieing gradually. History as a subject that is even supposed to help alittle i heard some schools are removing it from the syllabus

    9. Girl I’m proud of you nwa Onicha ado n’idu. Keep it up.@anon 20:04.

      I for one don’t think you have totally failed as a parent if your children can’t speak your language but it is equally very important as a parent and especially as an Igbo parent. Our language is gradually going into extinction. Igbo parents must sit up

    1. English has been advancing for ages, this advancement helped advance the english world, as its now a dominating world after dominating and eating up the minorities. They eating us up and tomorrow we will have no land of own, cos a lost language is a lost land. We would be imprisoned by their culture and totally forget who we are.. the Chinese know this and thats why English is a foreign language to them..

      Now what unique thing do You like about your tribe.. every parents that deprive em children of the indigenous language is further depriving them of the true uniqueness in them and as such has failed.. tomorrow we would have to pay the whites to hear what our languages sounded like... the problem is we in this part of the world are short term thinkers..

  7. Partially. It's part of your responsibility to teach them so they don't lose their touch culturally.

  8. Not really true in a situation where both parents aren't the same tribe, it becomes difficult for the parents to speak at home for the kids to learn. But again that isn't an excuse, for the child can still learn both language.

    If they are both the same tribe, then it becomes a big shame to them if their kids can't speak their dialect, what then have they been speaking to each other?

    Stella, it's so painful someone speaks with an Igbo language to a kid for instance and he responded with "you say wetin" be an Igbo child for that matter. Sometimes people wants to communicate to you in a language those around can't understand and then it becomes difficult since you can speak or understand.

    Language is a culture, and when a group of people can no longer communicate effectively through it, then it becomes very bad and disgraceful.

      Most people who are saying false or it doesn't matter are those who can't speak their language and they are trying so hard to console themselves but truth is that they aren't happy as well for not knowing how to speak.

  10. Very true biko, how can you raise kids that can't speak their native language? But you'll train them to speak another man's native language? That's complete inferiority complex whether you like or not that is what it is.

    5. All if you saying it’s a problem not knowing how to speak language... when you go for interviews go and speak your native language you hear. The most important language a child must know how to speak is the one generally accepted. Which is English. Even some people who can’t speak good English feel embarrassed about it... if you can’t soeak good Yoruba or ibo for instance, do you feel embarrassed?
      Yes it’s good to know how to speak but it’s not a must and that doesn’t make anyone a failed parent.

  11. True but I don't know how to speak my language. Whenever I travel and in the midst of relatives I'm always quiet but i understand everything and always answer in english. The yabbing I get no be small.

    1. But you can still learn. I was born and raised in Port Harcourt and the neighborhood we lived then was mixed tribe. It was difficult learning, for my peer groups often speak the local pidgin language. It was when I traveled down to the East and stayed for a long time I became very good in speaking. My parents are both from the same village in Enugu, so it wasn't that difficult knowing how to speak.

      Sometimes why you feel you can hear but can't speak is because you are always conscious not to make mistake when you try to speak. You don't want to be laughed at. Just free yourself and say it anyhow it sound and gradually you will be getting close to perfection. But if you don't attempt, then you will never get it. Even if you are laugh at, just pick up the correction and next time you will say it right.

      To make it easier for you, why not get a bible in your native language, then try reading it often. You will get better with time.

  12. I'm even tired! Speak igbo and yoruba to my kids since i was born in lagos but the kids stills speak the canadian English and when they even try to speak igbo and yoruba, you will not understand cos the canadian accent has covered the whole thing! I am on it ooo!

    1. I guess you are not in Nigeria. The environment factor also play a role as well. But I have seen kids born in US that speaks Igbo fluently. My uncle kids does, maybe their grandmother looking after them could be the secret.

    2. I've found that deliberately speaking a bit slower, masks the oyibo accent when I speak Igbo. Try it and see if it works.

  13. Capital FALSE. Na native language keep me like dis. I was stocking my brain with so so Igbo language up to the point I got A1 in Igbo language in WAEC. There is no space for my brain to accommodate English and other languages. This is where my problem started.

  16. Not true joor. In some cases the parents are of different tribe so they discuss in English and the kids pick up. Even in the North here, a good number of people cant speak their native languages cos both parents are from different tribes so they speak Hausa instead.

    I speak Igala but it's not as smooth as that of my cousins that grew up in the village. My siblings esp our last born understand but cant speak. I also speak, igbo, yoruba, gbagyi, hausa and a bit of french. Me sef dey try oo😁😁

  17. Ok...... at the end, we will have no root, no voice, and no identity.. People with no indigenous language are enslaved to the contemporary world, they end up not seeing any beautiful thing about their heritage, they disunite, and loose every touch of having a common goal of progressing.. in the long run we will end up trading the land itself to the so-called foreign world because we aint see anything good in us. How do You expect someone who doesn't understand his tongue to see anything good bout his tribe or even hunger to advance it...

    Lets keep giving excuses like of what use/good is the language to them in the world today.. But I promise You, the world tomorrow shall read about you as an history that never came into limelight.

    Oh I forgot, Most Nigerians are unpatriotic to start with.. they see all their things as inferior... this the highest level of slavery. The psychological slavery.. and yes parents have failed in this regard.. They aint know they depriving the child the true identity passed on to them by their own parents.

  21. It is important for children to be bi or multilingual. I know many Greeks, Indians, Poles, Italians settled in the UK who make it a mission to not only teach their kids their dialect but they also send them to cultural school every weekend. Some Nigerians have also started doing this, particularly the educated 'butter' ones, but the vast majority choose to only speak English with their children which is a massive shame.
