foreign language learning strikes back

December 23, 2010 § Leave a comment

The Modern Languages Associationof America’s most recent review of language learning enrolments in American tertiary students reveal a continued slow rise in student numbers, suggesting that in the States at least, language learning is recovering from the drop in numbers. While not at the levels of language learning in the sixties, steady increases have been seen in the uptake of the languages German and French. Spanish however has been steadily on the rise and is the giant of the field. The other language growing in popularity is American Sign Language. Chinese, Japanese and Italian are maintaining numbers if not growing.
