Bilingual programs by a 2º Bachillerato student

María Isabel from 2º Bachillerato C has never studied in a bilingual course. However, she is one of the best students I’ve had in the 15 years I’ve been teaching English. Here is her opinion about the bilingual programs in the Spanish Educational System. Worth reading!

At first sight, bilingual programs are a good way to learn foreign languages, but actually it takes along a lot of consequences.

The Spanish government is going through a nasty serious crisis which affects its economy. We are investing a lot of money on these programs while there are other aspects of Education which have been put aside.

We have more English or French lessons than Spanish lessons, so when children finish school and high school they don’t know how to write or talk well in their own language. Moreover, I think that the Spanish government invested lots of money to start these programs off, but they didn’t think that maybe there weren’t enough teachers to make them work or that maybe they should be investing more money on Health or on old people’s  pensions.

To sum up, bilingual programs would be a great way to learn English, French, Italian, German,…if they were planned in a different way and with more economic resources.

    Hola, M ª Isabel. Mi inglés se queda bastante escaso para felicitarte por tu texto y para expresarte que me han gustado muchísimo las reflexiones que nos muestras. Estoy de acuerdo en todo lo que planteas, además porque lo vivo de cerca por la profesión que ejerzo: profe de lengua castellana y Literatura en un IES de Murcia. Creo que se puede decir más alto, pero no más claro.
    Un saludo, campeona.

    A well-written and well-argumented essay, Mª Isabel. It’s nice to read a young person with such clear ideas, ideas I fully agree with. Congratulations and good luck for the future.
