growing up with my nani (grandma) in southall, west london i spoke a blend of languages that represented my family's migratory history - punjabi, urdu, english (each peppered with swahili words & phrases).
like a lot of second/third generation migrants to places like the uk, my teenage self gradually let english take over at home and school (especially after a fresh prince style move to greater london suburbia 😱)!
as an adult wanting to reconnect, i was fortunate to set-up and run apples & pears - a charity that built community projects with often overlooked groups across london.
engaging with migrant communities similar to the ones i grew up in brought me halfway 'home' and i was eager to complete the journey!
lacking the confidence to bring it up (or practice!) with my wider family, i started looking for online punjabi, urdu and swahili teachers as a way of revisiting my heritage and ancestral memory.
the process uncovered some uncomfortable truths:
we've ambitious goals for somos, starting with our free to join community for online language teachers, which - if you teach languages online - we invite you to join here!
we'll be launching our 4-week conversation courses later on in the year.
