Teach maths in English to improve l’anglais

Using foreign languages for everyday teaching of school subjects such as maths, history and science would “offer a better mastering of foreign living languages” says a report to the education minister.

The report by schools inspec­torate head Chantal Manes and British journalist and former English teacher Alex Taylor, looked at ways to revive language teaching in schools.

It said teaching languages only in language classes was not enough, especially as class times had been reduced, and it should be spread into other classes if the teacher was comfortable with doing so.

Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer is looking at the proposals for his upcoming lycée reform bill.
