Multilingual Living is delighted to announce its seventh Language Challenge 180 giveaway prize – we only have ONE of these giveaways so don’t miss it! This giveaway will only be open for 6 days, so enter today!
Congratulations to Wendy who won last week’s giveaway for The Everyday Language Learner’s Guide to Getting Started First Class Edition!
We multilinguals love words, don’t we? And we especially enjoy what we can do with words in our different languages: We share meanings, engage in conversations, participate in cultural traditions, and so much more.
Michelle from Mother Tongues know this very well. Her products are all about words, especially those that are difficult (or impossible!) to translate into another language. When you wear one of Mother Tongues‘ products, you share some of the world’s most beautiful words with the rest of the world. So fantastic!
Here is more about Mother Tongues from Michelle herself:
I love words. Maybe you do too. I seek out words, not the normal, everyday words, but words in languages that I do not understand, words that can teach me concepts from other cultures. These words, I believe, can inform my life and all of our lives in positive, life-giving ways, because I’m convinced that one culture can educate another.
I’ve built a business around these words, a clothing company called MotherTongues. I print meaningful words from diverse languages on t-shirts and accessories like socks, scarves, tote bags and aprons, along with a poetic explanation of the word(s).
We (my husband is my big inspiration and motivator, and I’m the worker bee) started by picking a word we know: “UBUNTU,” a Zulu or Xhosa word from our native South Africa. Ubuntu is a term for humaneness, for caring, sharing and being in harmony with all of creation. It means that we are all connected, all of us on this planet. I am because we are. We wanted to share this cool concept with the world.
We are delighted to be able to give away a $40 gift certificate to be used at MotherTongues.com. Make sure to check out what Mother Tongues has to offer – you are going to love what you see!
