One response to “Multilingual Education in the 21st Century: A top priority around the globe

  1. I am greatly amazed at the amazing language instruction featured in these video clips. In particular, I was astonished at the Chinese teacher’s lesson with her elementary school children. I anxiously look forward to sharing these videos with my administrators and colleagues to show them that effective learning of a second language should occur at an early age. The human brain is so malleable at younger ages, and one must harness such malleability to encourage language learning.
