What is a foreign language worth?

What is a foreign language worth? | Educating English Language Learners | Scoop.it

"The cost of assuming that foreign customers will learn your language, and never bothering to learn theirs, is certainly a lot greater than zero.  The world isn’t learning English as fast as some people think. One optimistic estimate is that half the world’s people might speak English by 2050. That leaves billions who will not, and billions of others who remain happier (and more willing to spend money) in their own language."

Learn another language...it will expand your mental capacities and (according to this article in the Economist) fatten your wallet. 

The Crew's curator insight, March 19, 2014 10:16 AM

As highlighted by this article, I strongly believe that learning a second language such as Arabic or Mandarin would be extremely beneficial to an adolescent. These languages are profitable to learn due to the fact that we are having increasing business dealings with China and the fact that there is a high demand for people who speak these languages and a short supply.- Hannah

Edmodo is a great online platform with huge educational potential for teachers. Since its launch a few years ago, Edmodo is being used now by huge number of teachers and schools from all around the globe. Given this mounting importance of Edmodo in teaching, I created  a section where you can find a plethora of resources, guides, and materials on how to leverage the power of this web tool in your classroom, check out here.

Today, I am sharing with you two important things every teacher should be able to do on Edmodo. These are: creating a classroom group and adding apps to this group.
