Topic 76 Should children start learning a foreign language early?
Nowadays, some may hold the opinion that children should begin learning a foreign language as soon as they start school, but others have a negative attitude that learning a foreign language early will pose (будет представлять) too much pressure on kids and will affect their mother-tongue learning. As far as I am concerned, I agree that bilingual education should start as early as possible. My arguments for this point are listed as follows.
This stand poses a threat to peace. — Это противостояние угрожает миру.
I agree with the statement without reservation (безоговорочно) since т.к children learn second languages quickly than adults. As we have observed, children can learn languages faster than adults; immigrant children translate for their parents. Child learners speak without a foreign accent, whereas (тогда как) this is impossible for adult learners. Therefore the earlier kids learn a second language, the less difficulties they would meet when they grow up and have to face a foreign language-speaking environment.
They ought constantly to go to bed about nine. — Они должны неизменно ложиться спать около девяти часов.
Another reason why I agree with the above statement is that I believe that bilingual education can be fun and stimulate children's learning interest. Many parents and teachers know how to teach kids a second language in an interesting way. One of my students told me that, when he was in kindergarten, every day his mum taught him a few native language characters as well as their meaning in English. As time passed (Со временем), the kid became keen (увлекся) to learn English. Sometimes he gave his mum and dad a quiz by speaking some English words and asking them what the meanings are.
I am constantly fascinated (постоянно очарован) with the complexity (сложностью) of the English language.
Bilingual education will not affect the mother-tongue study of children. As we are living in an environment of pure native language conversations and traditional culture, it is impossible for us to give up our culture and language. Teachers also are trying to arrange the curriculum in a appropriate way. For instance, they create an English-speaking environment for children in the morning, and a native language-speaking environment in the afternoon.
English fascinates (очаровывает) me.
Bilingual education has become a trend. No matter we like it or not, future educational undertakings (предприятие; дело) will become more international, and exchanges between schools throughout the world will increase. Given this, speaking a common language is important and, to this purpose, bilingual teaching is an inevitable way.
