Me sorprende mucho que estos estandares son efectivos en las clases de español porque son específicamente diseñados para el estudiante "ideal". Por otro lado, tienen el objetivo de construir la habilidad para la resolución de problemas en los niños, algo que es muy importante para aprender una lengua.

Es mejor enseñar los niños a ser bilingüe durante la edad critica. Pienso que mucha gente tiene la idea que es demasiado para los niños aprender más que una lengua pero es una cosa muy beneficia.
Kelsey Landrum's comment, May 5, 6:44 PM
Estoy de acuerdo con el artículo. Cuando los niños aprenden otro idioma durante el tiempo criticó, ayuda con las funciones del cerebro. Tomé las clases de alemán en la primaria y todavía conozco algunos palabra y frases muy básicos.

Ser bilingüe en frontera ofrece poca ventaja salarial: estudio

Ser bilingüe en frontera ofrece poca ventaja salarial: estudio | Spanish in the United States | Scoop.it
Aunque el avance del uso del idioma español es evidente a nivel nacional, el hablarlo en El Paso no hace más competitivo a los profesionales que buscan obtener mejores puestos e ingresos, y por tanto emigran a otras latitudes.

Datos de la Oficina del Censo del 2013 confirman que el 81 por ciento de los habitantes del Condado de El Paso son de origen hispano, y que el 73 por ciento de la población mayor de 5 años habla otro idioma diferente al inglés en sus hogares. Sin embargo, las oportunidades de un buen salario no van de la mano a esta tendencia, de acuerdo con investigaciones académicas y testimonios recabados por este medio.
