App to help promote KDM language

22nd May, 2018

By JASON JACK EBIT

PENAMPANG: A new KadazanDusun language app designed to help especially youngsters to learn the local language will be unveiled soon, said Assistant Minister of Education and Innovation, Jenifer Lasimbang.

“We must continue to preserve our mother tongue KadazanDusun to uphold our identity for the future generation.

“This app was designed so that the youth can learn our KadazanDusun language,” she said when officiating the Kaamatan celebration at Kg. Soobong, Kolopis, yesterday.

Jenifer who is also the Moyog assemblywoman disclosed that the app will be available for free and was developed through the success of ‘Huminodun, the movie’.

“Through the success of the Huminodun movie, we were able to develop this app,” she added.

Meanwhile, Jenifer who starred in the 2017 movie also expressed her concern about the inability of the today’s youths in mastering KadazanDusun.

She recalled that some of the actors and actresses in the movie had challenges in playing their roles more effectively because of their inability to speak the KadazanDusun language.
