£340 extra to help teach foreign languages

I'm sure we're all grateful... But come on!!

Primary schools will receive just £340 each extra to help them teach foreign languages next year. Ministers have pledged £35million, £5million more than this year, as schools prepare for 2010 when languages will become compulsory from the age of seven.

But Mick Brookes, of the National Association of Head Teachers, said the capacity of schools to develop languages was "dependent on funding". He added: "There may well not be enough."

Do you reckon?
