How Did You Learn Your Language? by DeGenius3: 11:03pm On Jul 27, 2012
most people learn their language when their parents teach them.

while others just learn by hearing and understanding.

so how did you learn yours?

Well, I was born in the countryside and I was surrounded by native speakers of my language. Besides, some of the relatives I lived with didn't speak English, so that was a plus.

I only spoke English in school and I used my vernacular for everything else.

My parents did a very good job :both of them spoke to us in our native language
I was born in a french speaking country (both my parents are nigerians) ,the first language I learnt was french (school)
With my siblings sometimes we would speak in our native language or in french when around other kids
Then ,it's funny but I had to learn english when I visited Nigeria or when I moved to the states
I could understand english though
