Building a global mindset helps students succeed as global citizens

15/08/2017

​In the age of globalisation, we live and learn in an increasingly connected world. Developing a global mindset is more important than ever to prepare students to become global citizens. Language is about more than speaking words, it also helps us understand people and their cultures.

Being able to connect and collaborate with other cultures locally and across the globe can open up a world of opportunities for further education, socialising and personal development and employment.

As tomorrow’s leaders and citizens, students need to understand the traditions, cultures, and languages of our global communities more than ever before.

  • nearly 75% of the world’s population speaks little or no English
  • at least 50% of the world is bilingual or multilingual
  • over 1 million Australians live and work abroad at any one time
  • we live and learn in an increasingly connected world.
