Essay: The Mother Tongue by Amy Tan

Sample Essay

In Mother Tongue by Amy Tan, we can see how the English language that the author learned at home became the primary language of sorts in the authors mind (Lesser). The author’s mindset was built in that raw form of English that her mother used and the raw form eventually became the core of her understanding of the English language and as the author grew up and learned various other improved forms of the language, the improvements began to form around that basic understanding of the English language.

An example of the fact can be seen from the instance that Amy Tan narrates in which she began to speak in her native English without even realizing:

“It has become our language of intimacy, a different sort of English that relates to family talk, the language I grew up with.”  (Lesser)
