Schools in the United Kingdom are taking help of the foreign governments for funding languages

Language is a borderless, and it is a universal mode of communication. By the looks of it, one of the significant schools in the whole of the United Kingdom wants its students to learn every single language that they can learn from an early age. John Rankin infant and junior schools located in Newbury, Berkshire said that it is compulsory for the students to learn Italian at least for an hour in a week. 

According to the sources, It is not the government of the United Kingdom that is funding the foreign language learning programme; instead, it is the Italian government.

In the school, the children are calling their teacher Stefania Cellini as Maestra Stefania as she is teaching the Holly class where Stefania teach the students about the everyday objects of the classroom. According to the sources, Stefania Cellini is one of the 70 teachers, Italian teachers to be precise who is currently paid by the Italian government to work in the schools of the United Kingdom. 

It is the job of Cellini and 69 other Italian teachers to promote and make the language a mainstream medium to communicate with people. The scheme introduced by the Italian Government is going to provide 112 primaries as well as 27 secondaries alongside an Italian teacher for free.

The bitter truth is this level of teaching language to the students is extremely rare. For five year now, it is compulsory for all the schools for teaching an ancient or modern foreign language to the children between the age group seven and 11. 

Nevertheless, progress has been extremely patchy. In the previous year, the British Council revealed that when it comes to language, there is always a marginal subject that most of the primary schools find challenging for delivering right beside most of the required competitive demands.
