We teach kids to speak real Spanish. For life.™

International Education Week 2010

You have been invited by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the U.S. Department of State to participate in the 11th annual International Education Week this November 15th – 19th. Schools around the States and the world will be celebrating the importance of an international education.

“All of us share this world for but a brief moment in time. The question is whether we spend that time focused on what pushes us apart, or whether we commit ourselves to an effort — a sustained effort — to find common ground, to focus on the future we seek for our children, and to respect the dignity of all human beings.” -President Obama

The theme this year is Striving for a Sustainable Future. Children must be prepared to be good global leaders and citizens in order to communicate and cooperate in an ever expanding global network of different nationalities and cultures.

Good News: Teaching children a second language is an integral part of preparing them for a sustainable future! You and your language students are already making a difference!

Do you have any ideas for celebrating this week with your students?
