The idea i'm proposing is that schools in South Africa and Africa at large should consider teaching children in their 1st language.
Drawing from what Mr Hetain Patel says about research and logic proving that we think in our 1st language and so we filter and code information in our 1st language. It becomes increasingly difficult to learn sciences and mathematics in english if you don't even understand what the word calculus means in the 1st place.
English as a universal language is vital for global communication but to allow our kids to be able to grasp education imparted at school we need to allow them to be able to think and filter that knowledge in a language they understand best.
