Applied linguistics and Bilingual Education Programs. Review of Bilingual education Program as education system in countries other than the United States
But here are three things I would like you to keep in mind as you address this:
1. “review” is a process, not the purpose or your argument. What are you trying to accomplish by “reviewing BLE programs…” or “uncovering this and that”? Who are you trying to inform? convince? THAT is the purpose of your paper.
2. Which country (or possibly region?) are you focusing on? You cannot lump all “countries other than US” together. Educational policies and situations vary so much from one country to another than you cannot make useful suggestions unless you focus on a specific context. So you have to pick a specific country or at least a region that shares similar instructional constraints.
3. ELT professionals who would most benefit from this are those in a country where the idea of BLE is still unknown or new. Therefore, you cannot base your argument on the review of BLE studies from that country. You summarize what we know about BLE based on the literature from US and other countries that use BLE, and then translate it to the new context so that professionals in that context can take the suggestions and run with it.
The purpose of the paper:
The purpose of this paper is reviewing the BLE programs in countries other than the United States of America and uncover the advantage of using these programs in countries speak languages other than the first language. This paper will try to inform educational authorities and ELT in France about the importance of the use of this program. This paper will focus specifically about France as it has one official language which is French and due to the strict French-language policy imposed by national government, there is no fund for these programs.
This section will explain in general the idea of that as a child, one of the first important steps in development is to speak the first word. As the child grows up, they continue to be exposed to language and start to acquire literacy skills implicitly and explicitly. Then, this section will explore the schooling as a method of language acquisition.
Bilingual Education Programs
This section will cover the definition of Bilingual Education Programs and the need for this program as the Bilingual education has been practiced in many forms, in many countries, for thousands of years. Defined broadly, it can mean any use of two languages in school by teachers or students or both for a variety of social and pedagogical purposes. This section also will uncover the debate on language education is flourishing in the current state of globalization and immigration and how the rising amount of globalization has increased the amount of linguistic diversity present in one’s everyday life
The effect of the bilingual program on different learning outcomes
This section will discuss the benefit of using this program in other countries and how the learning outcomes will increase students’ achievement in these programs
The economic benefits of knowing a second language
This section will explain how the knowledge of a second language is widely believed to be essential for workers to succeed in an increasingly interconnected business world, and that’s why school that not utilize this program in schools. This section will show that learning a foreign language is important for economic reasons.
Improving Bilingual Education Programs
This section will discuss how to improve this program in school and what steps need to be done to make this program is successful by providing resources to the students and their parents to improve their learning of other languages.
Review the advantage of Bilingual education programs in U.S and Germany as both countries
The successful use of BLE in U.S. and other countries.
This section will summarize what I know about BLE based on the literature from US and other countries that use BLE, and then how to implement it to the French context so that professionals in that France context can take the suggestions and run with it.
Bilingual education’s language policy in France
This section will explore the language policy in France regarding the use of Bilingual education programs. It will explain based on the previous sections, how this program is important and how countries such as U.S. and others successfully implement this program in their school and how it benefits the students to develop their achievement learning for other language other than their first language.
This section will conclude the benefit of using Bilingual education program in other countries other than the United States of America. This section also will summarize a comparison in using BEL in France and other countries including the US.
