Thank you for this!! My children speak Yoruba even though we live in England and it’s really sad to see a lot of parents don’t encourage their children to speak the lovely language. We are going home soon and they will be so disappointed!

I study law in the Arab world, they teach with Arabic. That way they are best in all they do and teach. they don’t employ foreigners, they do their stuff. Even Yoruba fail Yoruba in school, many so call Yoruba prof are shame of speaking Yoruba in their homes. I hope our prof should do something.

Wow. When I look at history, the most uncilivilized people are the ones who spoke english. I read Language defines who you are. When you throw away your language, your throwing away your identity.
Im born and raised in America but Im striving to learn Yoruba and speak it. Why not learn the tongue of people who are identical with me in skin and culture.

I was having just this same conversation with my bro yesterday. We need all Nigerian citizens to think like and as this woman. If we must develop and preserve our OWN civilization, we must see the need to appreciate our local dialects and see our differences in tribes as a blessing of diversity. Respect to this woman.

May God bless all your generation professor Sophie Oluwole, our problem are all these wrong leaders that do not have wisdom to restore their ancestral linguistic value. Yoruba language is not inferior, but a primitive language that happen to be an embodiment of encoded knowledge, from which abstract European took their derivation. European languages are not a natural languages that is why they are of lexicon language, a lexicon languages are not semantic that is why European cannot explain the meaning of names in their cultural language. We need to do what needed to save Yoruba language all Yoruba region should force all schools up to university in their region to teach their students Yoruba language throughout academy section.
