I feel that I am not speaking in English at the level I would like to be able to.
I still struggle to find words sometimes. Adeyinka lived in Nigeria until when he was in his twenties, when he came to live and work in the UK. Adeyinka notes that both in education and in his work whilst in Nigeria, participation was not encouraged and this was a shock when he came to live in the UK and was asked to participate in meetings when everybody spoke and everybody contributed.
Despite the fact that English was such a dominant language when he was a child, Adeyinka is very glad that he speaks Yoruba. He and his wife communicate in English and they have a one year old daughter. Adeyinka would like her to speak Yoruba but he has not started speaking Yoruba to her yet, he is somewhat inhibited by the fact that his wife does not understand the language. Adeyinka speaks Yoruba to his family and friends — apart from one sister - his youngest sister who prefers to speak English.
This difference may have been compounded by the fact that she went to a better school that her older siblings where the students spoke more English. This sister is now more comfortable speaking English than Yoruba, although she is fluent in both.
When at home, all of the family pray in Yoruba, except this sister who prays in English. Even when speaking Yoruba, Adeyinka does include English words and feels that because of the time that he has spent in London, and his English language marriage, he is now more comfortable speaking English and probably thinks in English too.
What advice would you give to a family starting now to raise a bilingual family now? I would try to raise children so that they have a fascination for that culture. Because you can teach them and speak it to them … but they have to want to speak it.
