World Language Rationale

21 May

World Language teachers definitely know the importance and value of learning another language.  Sometimes our love of the subject is not enough to express that importance to others.  Here are some of my favorite resources to help talk to administrators, community members, parents and students.  At the bottom I linked my favorite You Tube videos that are high interest to students.  

Routes Into Languages

700 Reasons for Studying Languages

Why Study Languages: E.L. Easton

St. Johns: Why Learn a Foreign Language

Why, How and When Should My Child Learn a Second Language Brochure

Knowing Other Languages Brings Opportunities Brochure

Working Together to Build a Multilingual Society Brochure

10 proven Brain Benefits of Being Bilingual

Room for Debate: The World Has Changed

Larry Ferlazzo’s compilation of resources

 

You Tube Videos:  Why Learn a Language.  These are very short and good when there are a few minutes left in class.  Berlitz has many great videos.  Be sure to preview them first, some are inappropriate (not these ones):

Learn Another Language (goldfish)

Learning English (German Coast Guard)

Bilingual Cat

He Needs Agua

Berlitz Ad – Toupee

Do You Speak English  I tell students this is how you may be treated if you don’t try to speak even a little of the native language.

I am sure there is a lot more out there.  Share what great resources you have.

Gracias, Penny
