A visual journalist working at BBC and an enthusiastic TikToker, Sophia Smith Galer, posted a video in which she applauds the Maltese language for its peculiarity in a fun, informative way!
Plus, the video also received nearly 400,000 views! Sophia shared that the Maltese language is one of her utmost ‘favourite languages’ and gives a few, historically accurate reasons why!
For instance, she mentions that Maltese is the only official, Semitic language of the EU – and the only Semitic language to use a Latin alphabet!
She even presents the extra letters in our unique alphabet and explained how certain Arabs can understand what we’re saying due to lexical similarities – which is true!
I think I speak for everyone here when I say I’m glad that the Maltese language got some well-deserved recognition on TikTok!
