Hi, Minglong:

My brothers and I have been very busy since we came back to Japan. School here started last week. I have many interesting classes this semester. Japanese history is my favorite. I've learned a lot in that class.

Lingua Today

May 5, 1995

There are about 6,000-7,000 languages spoken in the world. However, almost one language dies every two weeks. It means many languages are getting near the end of their lives. Take Navajo for example. It is one of the languages spoken by the native people of North America. Today, more and more Navajo children grow up learning and speaking only English. Most of them do not even know what the 3,000-year-old Navajo language sounds like.

Chart 1 below shows that from 1980 to 1990, the percentage (%) of young Navajos (Age: 5-17) who speak only English grew quickly. Chart 2 shows that in 1992, many Navajo children under the age of six spoke English well, but not many of them spoke their parents’ language well. Clearly, the Navajo language may soon be lost if we don’t do something about it.

I was sitting by the window,
Lightly kissing my sleeping cat,
The half-finished coffee on the table,
The blowing fan on the wall,
The sweet music on the radio.

A little girl was riding a yellow bike,
Slowly passing by my window,
The light wind on her face,
The flying hair behind her ears,
The quiet lazy summer afternoon.

The grizzly is the star of our little town in the mountains. Many people visit here for this kind of strong large brown bear. When a grizzly grows up, it may become as heavy as 680 kg. But never think this gigantic animal moves slowly. In fact, the grizzly can run as fast as 55 km an hour.

Though grizzlies look quite big and dangerous, they eat not only meat, but also flowers and grasses. Fish is their favorite food. On summer nights, they enjoy catching fish in the rivers. That is why people usually come watching grizzlies in this season.

Now the number of grizzlies is getting smaller because they have been killed by people who sell grizzly body parts as medicine. Many people of our town are worried about this and have asked for help to save our big friends.
