MOTHER TONGUES

A Dialogue of First Languages​


In the United States, roughly 20% of the population* can speak a language other than English; comparitively, more than half of the European population (54%)** can do the same. While this comparison is limited in scope, it speaks volumes about our insolated nature as Americans. Here at UNT, students from more than 120 different countries*** come together to learn every year. To appreciate our diverse student body, it is essential that we engage in languages spoken by our peers. February 21 is International Mother Language Day--join us in celebrating the influence of first languages and the impact they leave on our world. Puruse Willis Library's collection of language learning materials as well as our sizeable assortment of novels written in different languages.
