Learning French and other languages in school.

According to this article in the Vancouver Sun, French is to lose its position of privilege in our local schools. I think this step is long overdue. Most kids are not at all motivated to learn French, and as a consequence don’t. If kids are able to choose the language to study, at least some will do better. And once they have learned one language, they will have an easier time learning French if they should become motivated to do so later.

I particularly like this line in the article;

“Schools should also promote online learning when they can’t offer requested language classes, the ministry says.”
