Malala employs pathos so that the reader could feel where she is coming from. As a result, she wants the reader to know that education for girls is a very imperative thing. By using vigorous pathos, she gets the reader to fathom that a girl’s education is important and meaningful to them.

I loved school, and all I cared about were my books”.

In the essay Mother Tongue by Amy Tan she speaks about how is was when she was growing up. That it was difficult for her to deal with her mother's "fractured English" but, has she grew older she became more proud of her broken way of speaking. She realized that there was nothing wrong with the way her mother spoke and that her mother wasn't different than any other American just because of how she speaks. I think that Tans' main point is very enlightening and should be shared with others. You shouldn't judge a person based on how they sound.
This means that Anzaldua not only get teased about her Spanish, but also with her English as well. Similarly, Amy Tan had also problems with her language as well. During her young age, she was expected to speak with very important people due to her mother's inability to speak English.

Dunbar also incorporates a cynical tone through the application of negatively connotated words such as, “lies”, “hides”, “shades”, “debt”, “guile”, “torn” and “bleeding”, that represent a disagreeable side of our species. Moreover, these words also convey the emotions of suffering and dissatisfaction behind a forceful “smile” that the mask places upon them. The deceptive mask that is personified as
In Mother Tongue, Amy Tan shows the discrimination towards her mother’s “broken English” and the impact of the language brought to her. Tan wants to remind us the real function of language is communication by the awkward situation her mother faced but not a sociological tool to evaluate one’s value, which the limitation brought from her mother’s broken English to her revealed. To many people, language was not seen as a form of communication. While people think that language requires every word grammatically correct, Tan shows us that the real function of language is communication which her example of the discrimination her mother faced displayed. For example, she shares about her mother’s “broken English.” When she is saying, “why he don’t send me

In order to be punctual and successful in life one must respect and follow time. If a person does not respect and value time he or she will always lack in some way or the other. From this harsh but valuable experience I learnt that no matter where you go you will always have to deal with people who may lack in social skills and may not want to blend in as much as you do.
