THE Scottish Council Development and Industry has opened a languages campaign targeted on schools and colleges. Regional and national awards are available for good practice.
Danny Chu, aged 13, from Shawlands Academy, Glasgow, told the scheme's launch at Glasgow Airport that he is opting for Latin instead of French in third year. "I've been recommended for French, but I don't want to miss out on graphics and communication because I want to become an architect."
Stephanie Anderson, Arkleston primary, Renfrew, sounded a warning to language teachers. "I really enjoy French and I believe it is very useful, but it can get a bit boring when we have to repeat things because some people can't keep up."
