Report: States that learning improves in countries that have invested in bilingual programs

from New Vision

A new policy paper by the United Nations has recommended the use of the mother tongue during teaching for at least six years of early learning. The report says that teaching a language "other than one's own language," negatively impacts a child's learning ability. It stresses that mother tongue instruction is needed so that gains from teaching in mother tongue are sustained. The policy paper issued "If you don't understand, how you can learn?," was released by UNESCO's Global Education Monitoring agency. It reveals that about 40 percent of children are being taught in a language they do not understand, according to UNESCO. more
