The government and education experts still cannot see what is patently obvious: teaching French and German to children in our schools is outdated, a waste of resources and just plain silly. Experts on the TES website admit there are few French teaching jobs; German teaching jobs are even fewer. Nobody wants to learn German. These are old languages so stop calling them 'MFL' because they are not! The government has just done a deal this week with China so that we can sell our products there. So why is Chinese language not taught in ALL schools!? It is because there are no PGCE courses for Chinese and also because all the French, German and Spanish teachers with PGCEs would be made redundant! Someone once said that you cannot stop the future and China and Chinese language is the future. Wake up and see the future!
