    No I don't read it, but their cover is amusing. As Original PM says, the truth hurts.

    Take Languages. A second Language in primary schools is fantastic! They just need to switch to the widest spoken language in the world(Mandarin) instead of a language only spoken in one country in the world(and 50 people in Patagonia).

    Don't tell PC I posted this - I have a reputation to maintain.....

    Welsh isn't so bad and it is definitely getting more popular here, though this shocked me my daughter is in Year 8 at comp and they are teaching them Mandarin.

    I think however this is just sheer luck as she is in the top class/set.
    My son too. He goes to a welsh language school.

    Apparently they had to get special permission though to teach the mandarin lession via English (you know what I mean!). Couldn't get a welsh speaking mandarin teacher apparently!

    Is there a single country that is not thought of as a tulip hole by anyone throughout the world?

    If so list them.

    List so far:

    The facts may not represent the general view of a country's population let alone the view of the president of one.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Why on Earth are they bothering with Mandarin? Sounds just like the obsession thirty years ago with UK kids learning Japanese, and what would be the point of that these days?

    No doubt in thirty years, after China has declined or been engulfed in debt and Africa is the up and coming country, everyone will be saying it is imperative our kids learn BongoBongo or whatever the latest trendy language there is called!
