Should language learning be compulsory in schools?SmileSmileSmile

Almost a fifth of primary schools in England could miss a government target to offer language teaching by next year, a report says. Should foreign language learning be compulsory?

Language lessons are set to become compulsory in primary schools in 2011 and the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) says overall language provision in primaries is increasing.Embarrassed

But the NFER found that up to 18% of primary schools will not be able to meet a target for language lessons to be available for seven to 11 year olds by 2010.Big smile

Languages ceased to be compulsory for secondary pupils after the age of 14 in 2004, although a separate Cambridge University study found almost half of head teachers disagreed with this move.

Do you think foreign language lessons should be compulsory? At what age should children start learning languages? Or do you think language learning is a waste of time?Big smileBig smile
