Reimagining Language and Our Own Stories

How can we write about language in a way that feels meaningful? Try out this prompt from instructor Jenna Tang to use language as a lens through which to tell stories.

Stories about our languages matter. The shapes of the words, the languages that brought us to different places in the world, and how they bond us with our close ones shape the way we are on a deep, emotional level. I like to think about all the languages I have relationships with as my “home languages” instead of my “native language,” “second language,” or “acquired language,” because they are part of my journey of pursuing a sense of belonging.
