Foreign Languages in Ethiopia: History and Current Status
Gerencheal, Berhane; Mishra, Deepanjali
Online Submission, International Journal of Research and Analytical Review v6 n1 p1431-1439 Jan 2019
The beginning of the modern education and the introduction of the foreign languages in Ethiopia are the two faces of a single coin. And this paper mainly shows how and when foreign languages are introduced into Ethiopia following the footsteps of the introduction and expansion of modern education. It is done using secondary sources. It also gives brief explanations on the statuses and the roles of those foreign languages during different times starting from their introduction up to present. The absence of well-documented literature on this topic motivates the author to work on it. It is true that this topic is shallowly discussed whenever researchers have been reviewing the introduction and expansion of modern education into Ethiopia. The topic has been investigated as a minor agenda whenever researchers have been reviewing the education policies of Ethiopia as their major task. However, this research has reversed the common trend by giving due attention to the foreign languages. Hence, this paper could be used as a useful source document for any interested researchers who really want to study on it since no or less organized literature is available. On this review, English language is given more focus since it is the dominant language comparing to the other foreign languages which have been introduced to Ethiopia.
