Welcome to the MLTAQ.
The MLTAQ Inc represents teachers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese and Spanish in Queensland.
Our president was interviewed on 07/04/2014 on the ABC on the topic of:
Should students learn another language at school?
on Mornings with Steve Austin
“Languages teachers are more than language teachers; they understand the significant changes in the structure of the economic, political and social systems of other cultures. This specialised knowledge can make a tremendous contribution to History, Geography, English literature studies. Languages teachers can add to discussions about the different ways particular cultures understand the ethics of science, for example”.
Beryl Exley (PhD), Associate Professor, Faculty of Education, Queensland University of Technology, comes out in support of Primary Languages.
