German Karaoke and Family Bonding

My husband is German, but despite his blond hair and blue eyes, you wouldn’t know it. There is only one thing that will turn his whats into vats: visits with his family. We’ve been married nearly three years and on each visit home he greets his family in German and quickly falls into his native language when talking about the drive down and the traffic. Their words bounce around the home like a ping-pong ball in a game that I don’t know how to play. But, to make me comfortable, they always switch to English. His parents and sister are…

And how much they understood the road signs, menus, and even the occasional overheard conversation. The connections these students made with the Chinese people they met will serve them well throughout their…

New Infographic on the Evolution of Classroom Language Learning

The state of language learning instruction in K-12 As much as the politicians mention how the United States needs to make their students more competitive in the world’s job markets, language learning in public schools is under increasing attack. Whether it is due to funding shortfalls or simply not enough time in the day to cover everything (especially if you are focusing on math and reading for the upcoming high-stakes test), the fact is that the number of elementary schools that offer language-learning classes has dropped from 32 to 15 percent in the last decade. If you’ve taken language training,…
