English – Language & Assimilation

Here is a link to the article that we looked at during class.

This picture is basically people in the Irish language community protesting for their rights and to be treated like normal citizens which I thought matched what the article was saying. In the article it seemed like the author thought that your language is your identity and that you should embrace it because it makes you unique and see the world differently. I think that she thought that the world wasn’t so accepting of people who speak a different language and that she didn’t agree with it because people should have the right to speak the language that they know and have grown up with, no matter if it is different to the people around them. Should people be allowed to speak their own language and advertise it and do you think it is important to and why?
