The Molteno Institute for Language and Literacy has reportedly called for children to be taught in their mother tongue or their first language.
Stephen Grootes on Wednesday spoke to the chief executive of The Molteno Institute for Language and Literacy, Masenya Dikotla, about why it is so important that children be taught in their home languages.
It’s academically correct that children need to be taught in the language they speak at home. You want children to just battle with content issues, not language and content at the same time.— Masenya Dikotla, Chief Executive of The Molteno Institute for Language and Literacy
