about

As the world continues to interconnect, in this modern age, the need for people to understand one another is magnified. Whether for business purposes, entertainment, tourism or any other reason, the more people learn about the world and the cultures that define them, the more they are able to make this world a better place. The languages people speak reflect the lives lived. Understanding people’s cultures therefore necessitates the use of language.

This book underscores the importance of using language and literature to enhance cultural understanding. It also discusses the ways in which the teaching of African languages and literature can be used as vehicles for developing people’s understanding of African cultures.
