Pop diva Madonna is trying to better her linguistic skills for the sake of her adopted Malawian baby.
The singer is learning Chichewa, spoken in Malawi so that she can help baby David Banda keep up with his roots.
Both, the Material Girl and her hubby Guy Richie are making efforts to help him get attuned to his native tongue.
“Madonna and Guy use the few words they’ve learned — mummy, daddy, hello, my love and some others — every day,” a source was quoted by the Sun, as saying.
“Madonna knows a Chichewa lullaby called Gona Mana and has been working on a guitar piece to go along with it. David’s a very smart little chap who idolises his brother Rocco,” he added.
Madonna is not new to the intricacies of foreign tongues for she has a single ‘Sorry’, to her credit in which she recites an apology in many different languages.
