We can all classify more than one kind of student based on their performances at school. There are those who excel most of the academics, those who are average, and there are also those who don’t give extra effort to show their developing skills in school. Not to mention the last kind of student I cited, some become are not taking their classes seriously because they don’t seem to get enjoyed with what they are learning. They find their schooling too boring, and of course other factors are also involved with it.

Such kinds of learners are also present in typical language schools. There will always be some students who would be too passive to take their language learning due to certain factors. Some of these usually involve in boring teaching techniques, unapproachable teachers, and the like. When it still continues, negative effects like low grades and unfinished learning will take place due to lack of interest. Language schools will not allow that to happen.

Now that we are in the 21st century, books are typically not the only resources for learners to learn languages effectively. Particular in Edison Middle School, teachers use iPods and the Internet to make the learning more innovative and enjoyable. This is a respond to a requirement among Sioux Falls seventh-graders to take a nine-week world language class that includes Chinese, French, Spanish and German. Each language will be spent 10 days by learners throughout the year.

There is only but one core reason why these young learners are provided with such innovative gadgets in learning foreign languages: to make the child more marketable in today’s society. “Being fluent in more than one language is becoming the universal standard,” one of the teachers stated. That is why technology is greatly encouraged to be used by students. Since there are downloadable apps in the iPod and personal computers that will improve a learner’s language skills, additional ways of mastering foreign languages is not impossible to acquire among young students.

Learning another language is definitely not a secondary option to take any longer. In fact, it would have been so surprising if you only know a single language nowadays.

Take heed to learn another language today. If you find this learning too tedious and uninteresting, take these seven-grader students as an example. They made language learning innovative by using the latest technology.
