Modern Foreign Languages

You will have to choose one of the following Modern Foreign Languages next year: (French, Portuguese, Mandarin). Remember the following:
As you progress through your education at school, a modern language will be of benefit to your personal and educational development in a variety of ways. It will allow you to establish contact with people of your own age who speak other languages and to access information from other cultures. It will help you to understand that experience of the world through another language can be just as 'real' and 'valid' as experience of the world through Spanish or English. It will offer you the positive experience of developing an entirely new mode of understanding and expression and an opportunity to acquire an explicit understanding of what the components of language are and how these may be manipulated for different purposes.
Keep in mind that you will have to show commitment at all times throughout the learning process. Good luck in your choice!

Hello Miss Ale,

I'm very nervous of the foreign languages!! But I hope I can learn Mandarin because it's not a very spoken and common learning in Argentina, so I think it's a privilige. Also I think because China is becoming one of the maximum "potencias" of the world. I'm very excited, I hope the year becomes faster.

See you tomorrow,

Hello Miss Ale,
I think this experience wll be good of choosing a new lanugage to speak. I hink the school is giving us a great oportunity, I think we are luck because just a few years ago they couldn't choose the lanugage they wanted to, they had to do Frenche, they wanted or not.
Keep on posting,
See you tomorrow

Hello Miss Ale,
I think the foreign languages are great, and as the guy that came to talk to us today said, no other school has these languages to choose. I think this is a great oportunity for us to learn and it is a new and fantastic experience we are going to live. I would love to speak french, but also mandarin, so I dont know which one to choose!!
Also I am very excited about Mascardi, we are going to have so much fun.
I think I never wrote a comment so long, long for me.
thanks,

hello miss ale

I think there are great subject in secondary. I wiil choose mandarin because i won´t let this chance pass, there aren´t many `people talking this language. Also because China will become best economist country of the world, so when I am adult maybe I will work there.

Hello Miss Ale:

I think that the Mothern Foreign Languages are very privileged for us, young kids because when we grow up it will be more difficult for us to understand it more that when you learn it from now on. It will be verry interesting learn Mandarin because I think that is exciting how to write, read and also how to pronounce the words, some of them have a lottt of meanings depending on how you say it and the intonation you give it. Not many people know this language all over the wourld. China is a very nice place to go on a trip, it will be very funny to go with all your friends. I know that this will be a very had challenge but this is a language that really makes me anxious to know it so I think I will learn very fast. I'm also interested in this language because, Brazilian I understand it well and I am not really interested in learn it. I talk with fluency French. When I went to CISV I talked with my (French’s) friends in French, and it was a veery fun experience. I am very excited with the interhouse of swimming that it will be tomorrow!!! I can't wait.
Thank you very much...

Hello Miss ALe,
This a very difficult choice because there are some easy languages and difficult ones bt we have to choose one that we think we are going to like and we are going to be determined to do it. Because sometime we have to study a lot and in some not, but it doesnt matter because you have to choose thwe one you like most.

Miss Ale,
I think that the Modern Foreign Languages is a benefit that not every school in Argentina has. It is a great opportunity for us and I am not sure about which language to choose, but I think that French is the language that I will use more in the feature. Portugese too because Brazil, is very near to Argentina, but it is much easier to learn. An last Mandarin which I think it is excellent that our school can provide us with such a language but I think that I will have to study A LOT, and it is not because I don't want to but it is also a challenge for me and I don't think that I want to travel to China for now and then as no one in my family speaks it, after year 10 y little by little I will go forgeting it. Well se you on Monday

Hello Miss Alee

I think that these subject of learning other modern languages is a unique oportunity to learn other cultures and more about other countrys. I will take Portugees because i think it will be for me much more usefull, for when I make trips to Brasil, because it is a very near country that Im sure that Ill visit many times in my life. And also, portugees is now expanding a lot and much more people are speaking that language.

See you Tomorrow,

Hello Miss Ale!
I have decided to study french because I think that by knowing french I will be able to cominucate with other culters and I also think is a very interesting language complicated but beutiful. I am also very nervous because I know it is very difficult (my sister toldme) but I think i am going to be able to handle it, I have wanted to learn this language since I was very little that why I know some sentences I have always have interest. This will offer to us to comunicate with other people from all over the world because lots of people can speak at least one of this kanguages french, english and spanish,well I am happy with my decicion, wish me luck!
See you at school,
Good bye Jose G.M 6A

Miss Ale,
I think that having the Modern Forgein Languages is a very good idea. I chose as first option mandarin, first I didn´t wanted mandarin but my father, mother and my big brother explained me that mandarin is very important because now it is a very important country and almost everything is made in china and to have a base of china maybe in the future it will help me with my work.

Hello miss ale

I think I am going to choose Mandarin because as china is a big country in the world and all the economy passes through china I think its an amazing opportunity for the future because if we are bussines men and we have to travel to china we will already know the language and it will be more easy to make treaties.
