2 Language language is a way of communicating. We can communicate through words or even pictures. There are differences of language around the world, because people have different perspective about the way they talk so they speak different languages.

3 Cultural Practice In my daily life, I use ‘Bahasa Indonesia’ to communicate with my family at home. At school, I use English to communicate with my friends. I have to speak English because it’s an international IB school. I learned many languages and how to write them. I have English lesson at school and at KELT previously and I learn how to write English letters. I learn mandarin at school and at home privately too. After studying mandarin, I can words in mandarin called ‘hanzi/汉字’. If I have a chance of studying a language I would choose Japanese because I like to watch JAPANESE ANIME. Japanese anime is an animation cartoon.
