Amusing teaching methods.
I am going to talk about the importance of learning languages and how teaching methods have been developed for last 50 years.
Nowadays, due to New Technologies, Global system, internet…. our society is changing more and more towards a global world, where can communicate with far away people, and so, learning languages is a must question. It’s absolutely necessary for us because of our growing international contacts with all the countries of the world.
There are plenty of reasons why we should study foreign languages. In the first picture, we can see as a father encourage his son to learn languages. It’s very important learning any language since childhood, as a second language.
Also, there are a lot of ways to learn languages. The second picture shows a new new method to learn Spanish. There are a wide range of ways: travelling abroad can get an enriching experience, get into their culture… besides, you can study through internet at home. On the web there are a lot of podcasts, video which can improve your pronunciation skills. On the other hand, if you have a chat room you can chat with foreign people. Internet is an useful tool to learn. The third picture express this idea. Besides, you should keep your traditional way of learning, with workbooks, cds… the grammar is essential to learn a language. Another suggestion would be watch tv in original version, read abroad press, keep in touch with abroad friends,…..(so on)….
As far as I’m concerned learning foreign languages is very important nowadays, because we live in a global society. English is the most important language, because is the language of international business. Multinational Companies, Google, Microsoft… run their business in English.
So that, people should communicate reasonably well in english. People in public life really ought to be able to speak fluent English. In this way, people would be more thoughtful to improve their English, Specially is a matter which happens in Spain.
