If you have had a background of language classes you will have it easier in the long run. Improving your vocabulary will improve your life in many ways. And on... ... middle of paper ... ...class. But I also don't think this would be a problem, since it wouldn't be hard to get students to sign up for an alternate language class because I'm sure a lot of students at Valley Center would like to learn another language besides Spanish. As you can see, you can greatly enhance your life in a lot of ways by learning a second language, such as communicating with people from other countries, expanding your vocabulary, and it will help open more doors to greater jobs in the future.
Jobs are seeking bilingual individuals to become a part of their team because they find themselves in a language barrier between the company and customer. I believe that supporting dual language programs will allow the students to not only become academically successful but also remain fluent in their native language. Being bilingual will allow them to communicate with a larger range of their peers and become more likely to receive job offers or promotions. Companies are looking for new ways of providing ideal products to their customers, this would be impossible to do with the language barrier many companies find themselves in. For instance, Bilal Kalkan states that “Employing bilinguals also helps in exploring new avenues with new clients from around the world for a company.” I also believe that maintaining the dual programs for an extensive period will ensure fluency for the children in both languages.
Teaching a child a second language has the same concept as putting in new software in a computer. Many advantages come with a safe and powerful computer and the same would come with knowing a second language. If a child was not taught a second language in their early years, that child might be at a disadvantage in their future, and as that child grows up not knowing a second language could potentially hold him/her back with grades and obtaining a job. Knowing a second language can benefit from those things and can also help with keeping strong ties with their family, culture, community, and even music. Speaking to someone in their native language is a great complement to that person.
We are not the only ones in the world, it is important for us to have the sense of the global community and to know more and respect different diverse languages and cultures. Not only do you learn the grammar of a language, but also its culture behind. Through appreciating literature works of different languages, children will be able to immerse themselves into different cultures and traditions. Researchers have even suggested that bilingual students tend to understand better in their mother tongue. Although it is true that it is never “too late” for people to learn new foreign languages, many studies have shown that children usually have higher leaning ability, especially in languages than adults.
Giuliani was quoted regarding bilingual education by saying, "It's cruel to them and gives them less of a chance to succeed" (Willen 8). This is a bizarre view that Giuliani is issuing considering that it has been proven that students who are enrolled in bilingual classes perform better on standard eyes tests. This is an advantage for these students to succeed considering that the better the test grades the better the opportunity to get into good college. In addition one can notice that knowing more than one language can "utilize the strengths of bilingual children to prepare all students to compete in a global economy that increasingly calls for multilingual and multicultural expertise" (Beyer 11). Bilingual education can be seen beneficial in many schools and helps students prepare for a future in corporate America.
Researcher Wills compiled different researches result on bilingual children’s advantages. Bilingual children are likely to score higher on verbal and non-verbal intelligence tests than monolingual children; bilingualism have influence both cognitive and linguistic growth positively. Most degree programs require students to have some second language knowledge because the American Council on Teaching of Foreign Languages recommends students to have an access to a foreign-language. Children are curious, and with a second language, it motivates students to learn. These children would have better acceptance to colleges and universities because a foreign-language on the resume builds the student’s characteristic on how motivated he/she is.
There are many differences that make TBE and ELL programs different. In ELL, non-native ... ... middle of paper ... ...ain more and more non-native English speakers. Young students in the ELL or ESL programs are not being encouraged to keep their language but rather replace it as soon as possible with English. These students are seen as having a deficit but really this is just a unique fund of knowledge that increasingly will become a useful and desired skill. Being bilingual could help these students get jobs and set them up to be looked at as having a valuable resource in the future.
When it comes to the topic of studying foreign languages, education should begin from kindergarten age, most of us will readily agree that it can help one become more open minded and leads to an appreciation of cultural diversity. Where this agreement usually ends, however, is on the question of is it an investment that wouldn’t pay off? Whereas some are convinced that it can improve our employability. For example, between two candidates with the exact same skill set and experience, the person who is bilingual is arguably much more likely to get the job. Others maintain that it can take up too much time and money.
While the others said the bilingual education is not a good way to help the non-native speakers to learn the English effectively because it focuses too much on their native language and failed to teach the English to them. ?Research speaks of increasing numbers of students i... ... middle of paper ... ...glish and can understand very well in class. As a whole, Bilingual Education should not be abolished because immigrants need this program to help them to be successful in the United States. The goal of bilingual education is good because it helps immigrants maintain their native language. This will benefit them a lot, and it also can help new immigrants to adjust into the new culture smoothly.
According to studies done by the National Center for Family Literacy and the Center for Applied Linguistics you are more likely to be bilingual at a young age then when you’re at fifty years old because when you’re young you are more impressible. Students should be required to take a foreign language because its helps you to get a better paying job, helps you later in life, and helps fight against Alzheimer’s. Can being bilingual can help you get a better paying job? The solution to that question is yes it can help you. Being bilingual opens a world of opportunities in the work force, some examples of this is the company flies you to another country to close the deal because they can’t understand them, control that factory for the company there, or close the deal with the natives that live there.
