Opportunities for Language Education in a COVID19 Pandemic World. The COVID-19 has resulted in schools shut all across the world. Globally, over 1.2 billion children are out of the classroom. As a result, education has changed dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms. Follow us to get regular updates.
Schools and universities haven’t faced this level of disruption in generations, but unlike any time in the past, we have the ability to continue education even when schools close. Research suggests that online learning has been shown to increase retention of information, and take less time, meaning the changes coronavirus have caused might be here to stay.
A record number of 1.54 billion children and youth have been impacted by the pandemic, and as of 31st March, 185 countries in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North America and South America have announced or implemented school and university closures.
UN Report on Languages:
A United Nations report estimates that as many as 40 percent of students worldwide have to study in a language they do not fully understand. In addition to making learning difficult, this result of a policy decision tells them their home language is not good enough for school. It makes them question whether they are part of a community. Besides, when teaching Arabic or English or Malayalam, a person often focus on one language at a time and forbid all others. This suggests that what we know about one language is not helpful when learning another language,that languages somehow compete for mental space. It also presents a false picture of how languages are spoken in the world outside the classroom.
