Which type of essay is Amy Tan's "Mother Tongue"?
a. persuasive
b. regional
c. bias
d. reflective
I read this essay and I think it is an essay that gives information to others people about the trials and tribulations of having a mother that doesn't speak English that well. But my feeling about the essay is not one of the choices.
