This was piece recently that I read in the Guardian what do you think?
My child’s amazing bilingual abilities and skills are not valued, used or developed in his English-only school.”
The Government can point to a growth in the number of bilingual primary schools as a result of its free school programme – there are French, German and Spanish schools in operation.
In addition, it is making languages compulsory from the age of seven in state primary schools for the first time ever from next September.
However, such actions are too little, Ms Gavrilova feels. “Our children are set to grow up in a world where their sense of normality is very different from ours,” says the brochure outlining its plans. “Their ability to adapt and adjust will be the difference between success and failure.
“It’s why the behemoth of the British education system is increasingly not the answer to our children’s needs.” http://www.independent.co.uk/news/education/education-news/teaching-in-tongues-the-bilingual-preschool-tapping-new-potential-9032047.html
But what do you think?
I think schools delivering bilingual opportunities are valuing their learners and parents culture. It from the first language that the second language is learnt and developed. It is only done much quicker than the traditional methods used as the young people brains are wired differently so they can translate easier and quicker across language using the technologies available to them to support their language acquisition. But what are your views?
