Review Why study languages? (A review)

I’m a language teacher like most of you. Do we really need to read a book about why we should study languages? Yes, we do. Why? Because it explains how to motivate students to want to study languages and shows teachers how to engage students and motivate them to learn languages and indeed motivate us as teachers of languages in our work. Part of a series of books published by the London Publishing Partnership, including titles on history, mathematics and geography as well as languages, the book is aimed primarily at students to encourage them to take languages seriously as a major employment advantage as well as a cultural interest and even, according to scientific research, a way of improving brain power. Practical, informative and readable, Gabrielle Hogan-Brun offers useful advice and information to all language teachers, backed up by a number of stories of people inspired by learning languages.
