Homework Help: English

Posted by Henry2 on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 at 7:48pm.

Here is my last paragraph for you to check.
I left out the most important part, which we need to vary, bearing in mind that English must be the lingua franca.
Do you think we should include "helping the pupils overcome their inhibitions" among the linguistic objectives?

I will start with the end of the paragraph which we need to vary.

11) This is why we consider it necessary to familarize pupils with a European and international dimension of working together and improving their foreign language skills.
12) Thus the project and its subject very well fit the pedagocial needs of the three schools, leading to a deeper understanding of the respective European partners.
13) Even though there is no anglophone partner involved, English is the official language of the project. Besides, it is taught at all three schools.
The pupils will, however, not only communicate in one foreign language but also in the languages of their partners: Italian, German and French.
(We can say that:
As English has been internationally recognized as the language of science and is taught at all three schools, this language has been chosen as the lingua franca for our project.
During the various exchanges,however, the participating students will have the chance to get to know more about the culture and institutions of their partners. Their mutual involvement will certainly urge them to learn other languages in the future??)
As you know, I need to vary their sentence on the possible use of other languages, which may cause misunderstandings as my students don't study either German or French.
German is taught at the French school along with English)
