1. 0 Introduction
Economics involves the options people make when complementing their unlimited needs and wants with a scarcity of resources. The term "economics" comes from the Greek words "oikos", this means house, and "nomos", this means manager. Therefore the term originally referred to management of family members. Today, the word has been broadened to make reference to firms and most of society. Another way of looking at economics is to consider the field as a couple of tools for studying people and communities and the options that they make. Accountants are trained to render an account of financial activity for a firm. Lawyers are trained into a certain method of thinking in order to handle issues in a legal construction.
It is a known fact that our mother tongue has an important role to play in our lives and this is something you should make sure to mention in your Mother Tongue essay. According to the author, Amy Tan, the language a person speaks defines the person they are and the choices they make. In her work Amy Tan writes about how her mother language has affected her life over the years. This is an especially important topic especially in the case of people with bilingual backgrounds. According to the author, if a person isn’t a native English speaker or doesn’t speak the language perfectly it doesn’t mean that they are any less intelligent than the people who do.
Language has a very important role to play in a family, being one of the family values. Tan also suggests that it is difficult to live with parents who only speak limited English.
