Students have II learn here in Alberta about how important multiple languages are. This is why I wrote Part A of the French Language Arts 30-1 Exam last Friday AM. In Alberta & in all provinces, French & English should be mandated in Provincial Language Legislation, just as they are in the great Province of New Brunswick.
It seems in China, Communist Party lackies are trying to kill the Cantonese language, as well as other dialects so that citizens will all speak Mandarin only. I mean thats outrageous David, the more multilingual students are, the better they will be able II further themselves in their chosen lifestyles & careers.
