What is a foreign language worth?

What is a foreign language worth? | School matters | 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

AISWA - Seven Schools Seven Stories

AISWA - Seven Schools Seven Stories | School matters | Scoop.it

Through the knowledge, understandings and skills of the Australian Curriculum: History,  the ‘Historical Inquiry through The Arts and Languages - Seven Schools, Seven Stories’  project enabled teachers and students to use a multi-disciplinary approach to tell a story. The aim of the project was to draw inspiration from the content found in each year level and integrate one of the Cross curriculum priorities, for example, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and culture OR Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia. This integrated approach also provided tangible opportunities for teachers to embed several of the core General Capabilities from the Australian Curriculum, including Literacy, ICT, Critical and creative thinking, Ethical behaviour and Intercultural Understanding.

Very proud to have been part of this project. This DVD of short films produced by each school,  illustrates their unique learning journey through the project. A second disc, a CD-ROM, contains a file from each school containing curriculum materials documenting each stage of the process. Here you will find a treasure trove of teaching and learning programmes, student activities and teachers’ notes, including a SWOT analysis as evidence of reflective practice.
