(Suggestedanswer) Learninga foreignlanguagehasbeena partof the school curriculumfor yearsand I believethat it shouldremainso for a varietyof reasons. In the firstplace,offeringforeignlanguagesin schoolsis vitalfor childrengrowingup in the twenty-first century.As more and more compani es become i nternat ional, employerswill expect their staff to speak at least one foreign languagein order to do businesswith foreign clients.Learninga foreignlanguagein schoolimprovesa child'sjob prospectsin laterlife. In additionto this,travellingabroadis now much easier and cheaperthan ever before.Many people choose to spendthei rhol i daysi n a forei gncountryand w i l lfi ndt heir holidayfar moreenjoyableif theyare ableto communicate withthe localpeople lf childrenlearna foreignlanguagein schooltheywill be ableto spendpleasantholidaysabroad. On the other hand, learninga foreignlanguagemay be confusingfor a child,as they mayfind it difficultto learnnew wordsand to keepthe foreignlanguageseparatefrom their own. Childrenare under a lot of oressureat school and learninga foreignlanguagemayadd to theirproblems.


Keyto Tests

EXITTEST(Units1 - 15)

To sum up, I believethat,althoughit can be hardworkfor the advantages outweigh a childto learna foreignlanguage, the disadvantages. In today'sworld,childrenneed all the skillsthey can get in orderto find a successfulcareer,and speakinga foreignlanguageis a skillwhichis valuableboth professionally and socially.
