Govt Mulls Introducing Spanish In Public Schools

Govt Mulls Introducing Spanish In Public Schools

The Government is seriously considering introducing Spanish as an optional language in public schools.

This was revealed by the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education after the Spanish ambassador to Zimbabwe His Excellency Santiago Gomez-Acebo made a courtesy call on Minister Evelyn Ndlovu and her deputy, Edgar Moyo.

Posting on the official Twitter page, the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education said:

The Ambassador of Spain His Excellency Santiago Gomez-Acebo paid a courtesy call to Hon. Dr Ndlovu and her deputy Hon. Moyo to lobby for Spanish as an optional language for primary and secondary education so as to create an opportunity to do business with 700 million people.

In an interview with CITE, Director of Communications and Advocacy in the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, Taungana Ndoro, confirmed there was a high possibility Spanish could be adopted in public schools, as an optional language.

Ndoro conceded that for that to be achievable, Zimbabwe would need to produce teachers who can teach Spanish in public schools. Said Ndoro:

The possibility of this happening is very high. In some of our private schools, you would find that Spanish is already being offered as an optional language.

But the proposal here from the (Spain) ambassador was to request for our public and government schools to also offer Spanish as an optional language.

Obviously, it would require issues to do with teachers who are competent and teachers who are trained also in Spanish so that they may be able to teach Spanish.

I FULLY SUPPORT THOSE WHO SAY LET US FIRST OF ALL INTRODUCE NDEBELE LANGUAGE IN MASHONALAND PROVINCES AND CHISHONA LANGUAGE IN MATABELELAND PROVINCES BEFORE WE LOOK OUT FOR AN OPTIONAL LANGUAGE TO INTRODUCE TO OUR FORMAL EDUCATION. I AM AWARE THAT FOR YEARS NOW OUR MINISTRY OF SECONDARY AND PRIMARY EDUCATION HAS BEEN TRYING TO INTRODUCE THESE THESE SUBJECTS, BUT THE STUMBLING BLOCK HAS BEEN LACK OF COMPETENT TEACHERS.

IT IS BAD TO INTRODUCE A LANGUAGE AS OPTIONAL BEFORE LOOKING AT ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES. WHICH OTHER COUNTRIES HERE IN AFRICA SPEAK SPANISH ? I DO NOT THINK WE HAVE ANY OTHER COUNTRY IN AFRICA WHICH SPEAK SPANISH.

COUNTRIES WHICH SPEAK SPANISH ARE FOUND IN SOUTH AMERICA. IF WE WANT TO INTRODUCE ANY OTHER LANGUAGE AS OPTIONAL, I RECOMMEND THAT WE INTRODUCE FRENCH BECAUSE IT IS SPOKEN IN MOST NORTH AFRICAN COUNTRIES.

IF IT IS A QUESTION OF DOING BUSINESS WITH 700 MILLION PEOPLE, WHY DO WE NOT INTRODUCE CHINESE LANGUAGE BECAUSE ZIMBABWE WOULD DO BUSINESS WITH 1.4 BILLION PEOPLE? CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME. LET US FIRST INTRODUCE SINDEBELE AND CHISHONA AS OUR OPTIONAL LANGUAGES BEFORE WE LOOK OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY FOR AN OPTIONAL LANGUAGE.

Why learn spanish when some of us can't speak shona. Introduce Ndebele in Mashonaland and Zezuru or Karanga or Ndau or Manyika in Matebeleland, why is that people would rather learn a foreign language than a different local language

Umbono yiwo boss. Some of us are privileged to have grown up in places where all these languages are spoken. I believe that if our own local langaues are taught in all schools,it fosters national unity and coherence in our societies. Isu bamwe tolebeleka,totaura,siyakhuluma,tilawambula,toreketa,tikamba,we can speak,and this makes us fit in any society in Zimbabwe🤗

What's with all this Ndebele thing. Ndebele is already taught in regions which it is spoken just like Shona is taught in regions where it is spoken. Don't be stupid. Kids in Matabeleland don't even know how to speak Shona. English is the only language which should be learnt. I also learnt French in highschool
