Janis Jensen, Paul Sandrock, & John Franklin
About This Book
We live in a global community, and to be a full member of this community often requires speaking more than one language. Educators and policymakers must ask themselves: What does it mean to view language learning not as an elective but as a necessity for communicating and interacting with people around the world?
The Essentials of World Languages, Grades K–12 answers this question and many more as it shows us
Packed with information about major trends and issues in world language education, this book offers valuable curriculum resources to help educators design and implement flexible language programs that prepare children to live and work in an interconnected, global culture.
