Testing the Blog Options

Testing to see if this is something that be used as a form of blogging. Seems any content is posted immediately onto board so there should be a limit on how many words can be used on the post - better to create an external blog for the classroom and link it to their board

 

Just two years later, this number was down dramatically, with fewer than half of all English school pupils taking a modern European language at GCSE level. Pupils were now not only avoiding traditional modern languages such as French and German, but avoiding languages altogether. The finger of blame was pointed at the incumbent Labour government, who in 2004, decided to make foreign languages optional at GCSE level.

 

Skip to 2012, and the House of Lords is again being forced to call for languages to be made compulsory in schools. Senior figures claim that British kids cannot compete with their continental counterparts, and more worryingly, they warn that Britain risks being cut off from the rest of the world. Compulsory language learning on its own is not the answer, and there seems to be a deeper issue that needs addressing. Making modern languages a central feature of the new English Baccalaureate – an award for pupils securing a C grade or better in English, maths, history or geography, the sciences and a language – should help the figures, but what can teachers and parents do to inspire children and make them want to learn languages again?
