Degree of Awareness and Reception of Local Language Use in Formal Education and New Technologies by the Youth in Africa: Insight from Cameroon

Gabriel D Djomeni


This study aims at shedding light on whether or how the youth receive the use of local languages in education and technologies in Cameroon. With data collected through questionnaire or based on quantitative data, the study sets out to provide an accurate answer to the following question: How are the youth aware of the teaching of languages in formal education and use in new technologies such as internet? A deep scrutiny of this main question reveals through analysis that recent introduction of Cameroon tongues into the formal school system has paved the way to a greater awareness by the youth of local languages and their use in education and new technologies. The study further unveils that the teaching of Cameroon tongues is a doorstep toward a better reception of local languages and their acknowledgement as the main tool for sustainable development by the youth, future leaders, who will therefore be prepared to foster change for the transformation of the continent.
