Pidgin affects English learning


NOWadays young children grow up in the society where our culture is no longer uphold.
Children tend to speak pidgin more fluently than their own mother-tongue.
We all come from a society where we have our traditions and customs with our own unique cultures.
Speaking of fluent pidgin has affected majority of the young people to construct a simple English sentence.
Pidgin is known as a grammatically simplified means of communication that develops between two or more groups that do not have a language in common: typically, its vocabulary and grammar are limited and often drawn from several languages.
It is currently affecting the skills of masterminding the English today.
The challenge is on the hands of the parents especially when the kid is still baby, they (parent) have the responsibility to teach their children in their traditional dialect (mother-tongue) and English.
If a child is able to speak a fluent tokples (language) without knowing the entire context of pidgin then he or she can be able to learn English very fast.
