This episode focuses on a something that many South Africans who have multiple languages in one home can relate to. From worrying if exposing your children to two or more languages will impact their language acquisition or stressing that the weird mishmash of Pedi, Xhosa, English and Sotho that your child speaks will eventually resolve itself into four coherent languages. Olwethu speaks to Carmen Ditlhoiso about this. Carmen is a Cape Town born, Kimberley based wife and mom. She works as a Speech-Language Therapist with a special interest in mulitlingualism as almost all of the learners she works with in mainstream school settings are multilingual.
