A(Way) with Words - Linguistic Determinism & Immigration
A Look at “Linguistic Determinism” - Have you ever faced a situation with family, or just random strangers, where you were unable to communicate with a certain language?

Language brings a sense of belonging and people should learn the language from their heritage to bridge the gap from their own cultures.
