Tuesday 26th August

Tuesday sees an improvement in C’s German already. I’m quite amazed by this. He is in Grade 2 and his maths homework is a full A4 page of numbers written out in full in German (achtundfunfzig etc) to match with the numerals. This might not sound very exciting, but I can see how it teaches them on different levels – language and numeracy at the same time.

Perhaps this something you don’t realise until you can see how it works when your child is being taught in a foreign language. Or perhaps I’ve had my eyes shut for the last 6 years (which is quite possible).
