Teachers urged to use foreign languages to teach subjects
November 30 2009
Teachers across the UK should be teaching subjects like history and geography in French, according to Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT).
The move could help stem the decline of modern foreign languages being used at schools, the BBC said in a news report.
The broadcaster quoted SSAT as saying schools that use foreign languages to teach have good results.
Teachers have also spoken about the benefits of using foreign languages at schools. Pilton Community College in Barnstable, started Arabic teaching with a trip to Alexandria in Egypt. "Of the six year 9 students who participated in the course, five were enthusiastic enough to continue Arabic as a second foreign language in our option programme," said John Davies, language college director.
Separately, people's values might be playing a role when choosing to train to become a teacher, according to Chris Morrall, director of Talent Transitions Ltd. He said changes in working conditions may also explain why teaching has become so popular in the UK.
