I took French in middle and high school, and I hated it even though I was pretty good at it. I dropped French as quickly as I could (after 10th grade) and never tried another language. Now I realize how important speaking multiple languages can be. Unfortunately, picking up a new language gets progressively harder as you get older. If only I had started as a young kid. That’s what Global Language Project is all about. They’re a New York, NY based non-profit organization that “seeks to equip disadvantaged public-school students with the skills to compete in a globalized world and work force” through a “free and comprehensive language training program.” It’s amazing how many opportunities can be opened up for you just by speaking multiple languages. Global Language Project aims to leverage this fact to empower young students.
I think of language skills as a skill multiplier. On their own they might be enough to get you a job, but by combining them with other skills they open up a world of opportunities that wouldn’t otherwise be available. This is just one of the many benefits of language learning. By starting students off on a new language while they’re still young, Global Language Project is giving them a huge leg up. I’m certain I would have enjoyed French a lot more if I had started when I was younger. Global Language Project has a number of different programs, but all are focused on elementary language education. If you want to be part of Global Language Project, check out their jobs on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for a Program Site Coordinator and Elementary French, Spanish, Arabic, and Mandarin Instructors. If you love language, these are great opportunities.
