500 word response
Directions: â€œEnduring Voicesâ€ is an interactive National Geographic report about language loss. Within this report, you may select one language (displayed on map), click it to learn more and then find an additional web resource of your choice to learn more. This can be a website that discusses your selected language/culture beyond what is presented on the â€œEnduring Voicesâ€ website.
Once you have learned about your chosen language, compose a 500 word response that answers these questions:
1) What language did you select? What culture does it belong to? Where are they located?
2) Why is this language endangered? Is it likely to survive or will it disappear?
3) Should languages like this survive? What are some effects of reduced languages, in the global landscape?
