Global Skills Taking Bilingual Teens Beyond


As stated by UNESCO, students must be prepared to interact in and with the world. Thus, a curriculum built towards bilingual education systems should be reconceptualized to include not only knowledge and language learning objectives but a focus on learning for life. Learners can benefit from lifelong learning perspectives that foster skills such as creativity, critical thinking, teamwork, leadership and responsibility to develop competences for the future, as seen in some Brazilian schools.
