Help get the word out on this silent crisis. Multiple languages go extinct every year, and opening up a dialogue on a solution helps!
Make your voice heard! Start a petition, set-up or host an event dedicated to the discussion of these nearly extinct languages, or simply promote the use of your native language.
Convey to the public the importance of native languages and the profound need for language to maintain healthy communities.
GET INVOLVED BY LEARNING
Studying a language is a challenge, but it has many great rewards. To begin the process, choose a language at Ethnologue. Then do a web search for materials, language courses at universities, and study groups.
If there are not many options for your language, do not despair. Begin a self-study and join or form a group on social media. Once you start, stay committed to the process. The attention and interest you bring to the language will help others as well, and eventually bring more attention to the language.
