The employer picks the bilingual applicant for the position, because he/she can speak more than one language and you have a huge skill to use with non-speaking English customers. The top working industries in the U.S. that are looking for bilingual candidates are: health care services, financial services, social services, public services sales, marketing and tourism as well. Children between the ages 5-12 years of age are more easily to learn a second language because their brains are still developing into an adult brain. So once they learn the language they know the grammar and spelling in a different language, besides their own native tongue. According to the 2007 study by the College Board, they found that students with at least four years of taking a second language class score roughly 140 more points higher in all three sections of the
If at any point they failed, they would see this as a big mistake and give up and have a lack of motivation. It can also be argued that working class children do not get the support of their parents, this is because many of the parents believe that they survived without an education, so believe that there children can do the same. Working class families can also lack in support in terms of if the child fails a particular exam, they would not give them positive feed back on how they could improve they would improve. Whereas, it can be argued that higher class families have more motivation and the parents also give the support to the children that is needed. This would have a positive influence on the child’s education as it would give them hope and not give them an opportunity of giving up.
I also don’t agree with him saying cochlear implants wont work well for young children and there better off for “healthy adults.” I believe that is would probably be easier for children to learn how to use this cochlear implant as a tool because at those young ages they soak up all information they can receive, rather then adults who are sometimes stuck in their ways. I don’t know this for a fact but this is what I believe can also be a circumstance. I do agree with him saying there are a lot of risks for children but those risks can also be just as big as a risk for adults. Like in Kathryn’s article she says you need to look at the big picture and what great potential the cochlear implant can have for children or adults. I also don’t agree with what they both say about the deaf
As in the article “Student Expectations Seen as Causing Grade Disputes” by Max Roosevelt, it is understandable that the students will want to receive a high grade for putting in an extreme amount of effort; although most teachers and/or professors don’t see it that way. They see it as your paper must be error free in order to receive the highest grade possible. To students creating the perfect paper seems impossible, even if they have all the right points and arguments. Furthermore, the teachers/professors really don’t know how much effort the student has put into the paper so they couldn’t grade on effort. For some students it may come naturally to just be able to create great essays so for them it seems to be a breeze.
That’s why true bilingualism has to start early in life. And one doesn’t really need to be good at languages to be bilingual. The languages you speak are closely bound up with your sense of identity and how you view the world. Being bilingual, multilingual or monolingual can affect the life of a person, his or her networks of friends and acquaintances, schooling, employment, marriage, preferred area of residence, travel and thinking. Even where two languages are quite similar and one can function perfectly in either of them, things feel different in different languages [2, p.367-368].
In other words, you could go to these countries and learn their languages, but they can’t really teach you the English language like natives speakers. Also, it is much easier to learn any language for the native speakers. The daily communication with a native speaker will help you automatically to be fluent and master the language easier. For this reason the place plays a very important rule in learning a new language. Moreover, besides the importance of the place, mastering any language learn on the people.
If students would start to learn a foreign language in elementary school they will be so little that they will not realize that they actually have to do work, and it is also easier for children at a low age to learn to speak different languages. I believe that students should be required to take a second language all throughout elementary school, junior high school, and high school because their job opportunity will be greater, it exposes young people to new cultures, and it enhances the academic skills of students. Pursuing this further, I believe that if one is fluent in more than just one language, one has a greater opportunity to be chosen as an employer of a successful company. It is definitely a plus if one knows a foreign language. Companies do not just look at the grades one had, graduating from college, they also look at other skills like their ability to communicate with others and if one is fluent in more than one language.
I believe when they are on it too long, the brain develops wrong and can cripple them mentally in the long run. I feel that some doctors have a lack of understanding on these conditions and just give out medication to hopefully fix the problem, only in the short term. People need to learn to cope with their problems without
Making Agreements Doesn’t Work. If you ask your loved one to not do something ever again, or to remember to do something, it will soon be forgotten. For people in early stage dementia, leaving notes as reminders can sometimes help, but as the disease progresses, this will not work. Taking action, rearranging the environment, rather than talking and discussing, is usually a more successful approach. For example, getting a teakettle with an automatic “off” switch is better than warning someone of the dangers of leaving the stove on.
The young beginner These students lack motivation to learn the language but they tend to pick up the language easier than older students. The choice to learn the language is made by the parents rather than the student The beginner without the Roman alphabet Without an alphabet that includes the letter’s A through Z, this student will need help with initial literacy skills. A great deal of reading and writing practice is needed. Task 2 – How would you as a teacher adapt your approach to beginner students? If I was confronted with a class full of beginner students I would need to alter my approach to teaching.
