Well, my mom still makes some of the food, but couldn’t speak more than one or two words of the language to save her life.
I think I would feel disconnected from my ancestors if I didn’t speak the language of my parents.
When you’re young (especially during puberty), you only care about your current life and your friends around you, ignoring parents and their way of life. If you don’t have desire, you won’t learn the language. But I guess it depends on your personality. Never mind, I’m changing the topic as usual.
What was the reason that your mom haven’t learned it? Does she feel like she’s missing something now?
