Spanish curriculum for elementary school

America leads the world in many areas, but one of those areas is not language learning. The Summer Institute of Linguistics says that around two-thirds of the world’s children are bilingual. In the United States, though, only 17% of children can speak any other language but English. In fact, in a lot of countries, mandatory foreign language study begins for students by the age of eight.

Nursing is so important and integral to every school unit, as it offers children the chance to find out more about their health needs as a whole.
