Welcome to the first comprehensive job placement network dedicated to the art of teaching World Languages.
Our world is becoming a small village. Young people are searching for new ways and solutions to improve the world around them. Learning a new language and understanding different cultures is vital to achieving goals. Learning World Languages opens new doors for students to reach their community, connect with people of different cultures, discover various practices, as well as understand, accept and celebrate the diversity of people from different backgrounds.
Independent schools have long cherished World Languages, expanding their class offerings, investing in their learners' future, and broadening their horizons.
Educators are keener to understand our current students; they are looking for new pedagogies to meet the needs of our students. For example, in my class, students made projects using Arabic calligraphy, enjoyed preparing Arabic food recipes, and shared the joy of their new learning with their families. Students visited local Arabic stores and restaurants to practice their language, taste fresh food, and connect with people from different backgrounds. Some even took trips to Arabic countries and were amazed at the beautiful reaction of Arabic-speaking people hearing a foreigner speaking their mother tongue. This reminds us of the famous saying:
"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart".
Learners nowadays want hands-on learning; they are eager to take charge of their education. They want to be challenged and given a chance to use their critical thinking skills and enjoy collaborating with friends, using analytical skills, and finding solutions on their own.
As an Arabic Language teacher with over 20 years in independent schools, I have enjoyed seeing my students explore a new language's uniqueness, develop a unique perspective of the Arabic culture, and celebrate the differences.
Our schools need teachers like you.
