Throughout recent history, literacy has most often been viewed in terms of the amount of educational preparation sufficient to bring about entry-level employment. Thus, definitions of “functional” literacy have typically been tied to grade-level equivalents. During World War II, for example, the average worker was expected to perform at least at a fourth grade level. By the mid-1960’s, the standard for “functional literacy” had risen to an eighth-grade level. Today, most new jobs already require twelve years of education, and the 21st century will present even higher demands. Workers are expected to master not only the basic skills of reading, writing and math, but also possess strong skills in listening, speaking, critical thinking, problem solving, team building, and technology.

A common definition of literacy used today is “the ability to read, write, and speak in English, and compute and solve problems at levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job and in society, achieve one’s goals, and develop one’s knowledge and potential.” It is important to remember, however, that the level of essential skills needed to meet any definition of literacy will necessarily change as the demands of the workplace, the family, and the society change.


The term “mother tongue” should not be interpreted to mean that it is the language of one’s mother. In some paternal societies, the wife moves in with the husband and thus may have a different first language, or dialect, than the local language of the husband. Yet their children usually only speak their local language. Only a few will learn to speak their mothers’ languages like natives. Mother in this context probably originated from the definition of mother as source, or origin; as in mother-country or land.


There are 194 countries in the world…


This number has been increasing because there are colonies and territories that are part of another country that become recognized as a member of the UN.

Recognize that there are dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes erroneously called “countries” but don’t count at all – they’re governed by other countries. Places commonly confused as being countries include Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England – they’re not fully independent countries, states, or nation-states).

I would be please to help you on this but, for some reason when I do a search I get a foreign language, don’t understand any of it, and I can’t find a way to get English back. Makes me sooooo mad. but if you would type United Nations in your search bar you should get some answers. same with the other issues you need. mother tongueis the main language of the country you were born in. It is called that because it is the main language. .194 total of countries in the world, type each seperately in the search bar. Good luck. Sorry I can’t help any more.
