In this thought-provoking episode, we delve into the personal experiences of African individuals who have embarked on the challenging journey of learning new languages upon moving to Europe. We shed light on the stark contrast between the expectations placed on African immigrants to adapt to European languages, while Europeans who relocate to Africa often overlook the importance of learning African languages. We explore the historical roots of this linguistic disparity, tracing it back to the era of colonialism, when African languages were systematically suppressed. Our guests share their stories, highlighting the enduring consequences of this colonial legacy on African languages and their status in the global north. Join us as we uncover the complex layers of linguistic inequality and its impact on opportunities for employment and social inclusion.
