Back to school! Ready for your new cohort? Our students do not realise the importance of having languages in their livres. You will find in this PPT some of the few reasons why learning a foreign language is so important.
I usually use it at the beginning of the year to highlight why it is important to have other languages rather than just English. It contains
- a starter with 3 questions (True or Myth) about languages and the correction
- an introduction with different celebrities able to speak other languages.
- information about where French, Spanish and German are spoken and some of the reasons why it is vital to have more than English as a language.
- three short videos (1 where French is spoken, 2 a touristic video about Germany, 3 a young polyglot girl )
- a reflexive slide where students chose 2 reasons why learning a language is vital.
