Description
Although language plays a key role in national development, African languages are still seen as less important for the development of African nations. This book examines the linguistic situation and the language policy of Burkina Faso and argues that most of the problems faced by (young) Burkinabè are caused by the language policy of their country, a language policy that forces them to be educated in a language they haven’t mastered. The author proposes a new language policy which could help improve education and the development of Burkina Faso.
