How Global Language Learning Gives Students the Edge | Edutopia

How Global Language Learning Gives Students the Edge | Edutopia | TNT Development | Scoop.it

Learning foreign languages boosts brain development, bridges cultural connections, and gives us an economic edge. So why isn't it a priority in public schools?

"Every issue you can name -- economics, public health, police work, climate change -- there are international dimensions to all of them. You have to have an awareness of other cultures. You can't know about all of them. You can't speak all languages. But languages are going to be important, and we are going to need to continue to learn about them."

Alberto Cardoso's comment, June 12, 2013 5:51 AM
To be good at work you need knowledge and skills, but without the right attitude you can never be competent. Can we consider intercultural skills a question of attitude?
Heather Nixon McLaughlin's comment, June 12, 2013 6:10 AM
Intercultural competence is having the knowledge of your own cultural identity as well as other cultural behaviours and the skill to be able and willing to adapt between cultures. It's like everything, no matter how skilled and knowledgeable you are if you don't have the right attitude then you will never be competent.

Cross Cultural Communication

How do people from other cultures think, communicate, use time and space, and view the truth? Can we assume that signing a contract in Japan, South America, or Italy means the same thing as in America?
