Cap2jitsu Posted July 24, 2014 Report Share Posted July 24, 2014 I am just wondering if any of you were taught a second language in school, whether it be your first language and english or if english is your first language and you learned another one. Growing up in Canada it was mandatory to take french starting in grade four of elementary school. Then when I was in Junior high, we had the choice from italian, french, and spanish, but it was also mandatory to take a language. High school was up to the students. If it was mandatory/not mandatory for you to learn a second language, what are your thoughts on the system? Do you think it is beneficial to kids to learn a second language from an early age or should it not be mandatory in schools at all?Personally I think that learning French at such a young age really helped me in the past, now, and in the future. I am able to travel to Montreal in my country and understand the basics of speech as it was drilled into my mind since I was a child.
