Language is the medium through which children talk to themselves and to others, and it is with words that they begin to construct and get a grip on their reality. The ability to understand and use language clearly and cogently is necessary for learning to take place. Language is not only a means of communication - it is also a medium through which most of our knowledge is acquired. It is a system that, to a great extent, structures the reality around us for representing it in our minds - it is a marker of our identity in a variety of ways and it is closely associated with power in society.
