Mind Your Language is a children’s story that takes us through a short journey of the various languages and cultures South Africa has.  Three friends meet at pre-school and they all speak various South African languages. They get lost at a school field trip and in their journey of finding the rest of the class, they use the opportunity to introduce themselves and their culture by using songs and phrases from their indigenous languages. The friends soon learn how important it is to appreciate your mother language and how it is also important to learn other South African languages. The new friends then make a plea to each other that they are going to make sure they speak all the official languages before they get to “big” school.
