English: La Lingua Franca of Science

 

With this blog entry, we wrap up our celebration of Culture Week 2016, and this year our students have made us so proud!  In conjunction with our topic of science for the theme of the week, we began in classes Year 3-Year 6 explaining exactly how and why English became THE language of science (and business too.)

We discussed historical events dating back to Galileo’s publications of his important discoveries in his mother tongue, Italian, instead of the language of the day: Latin.  We discussed how WWI especially contributed to the lessening impact of the German language at the time and how the years between the wars, as well as those post WWII gave rise to important international scientific (and political) bodies whose language became English.

Year 6 students studied famous world scientists, read about them and wrote their own «autobiographies» to teach us about some famous people and their accomplishments, which have had a huge impact on science, and indeed on our daily lives.

Finally, the students in Years 3-5 were visited by famous scientists from all over the world! They listened carefully to do an activity that matched scientist to achievement!  Though each class visited our scientists in the garden to showcase their accomplishments, in the end, the weather won and our final exposition took place indoors.  We are sure that when you see this video, you will be as proud of «your» scientist as we are of them!

Con esta entrada al blog, concluimos nuestra celebración de la Semana de la Cultura 2016, y este año nuestros alumnos nos han hecho muy orgullosos!

Como nuestro tema de la semana era La Ciencia, comenzamos en las clases de tercero a sexto explicando exactamente cómo y por qué la Lengua Inglesa se convirtió en el lenguaje de la ciencia (y de los negocios también).

Hablábamos de eventos históricos como por ejemplo el impacto que tuvo Galileo al publicar sus logros en su lengua materna, Italiano en lugar del publicarla en la lengua franca de la época, Latín.

También, examinamos cómo la Primera Guerra Mundial contribuyó especialmente a la disminución del impacto de la lengua alemana en esta época. Y cómo los años entre las guerras, así como aquellos periodos después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial dio lugar al nacimiento de importantes organismos científicos (y políticos) internacionales en los cuales el Inglés se constituyó como idioma oficial.

Los alumnos de sexto eligieron y estudiaron a diversos científicos de fama mundial. Leyeron sobre ellos y escribieron sus propias «autobiografías» enseñándonos algunos personajes famosos y sus logros que han tenido un enorme impacto en la ciencia, y de hecho en nuestras vidas.

Por último, los estudiantes de tercero a quinto fueron a visitar a estos famosos científicos de todo el mundo en el jardín! Escucharon con atención para conocer cada logro científico y realizar una actividad sobre ello! Aunque estaba previsto que cada clase visitara a nuestros científicos en el jardín, al final el tiempo no nos acompañó y nuestra última exposición tuvo lugar en el interior. Estamos seguros de que cuando vean este video, estarán tan orgullosos de «sus científicos” como nosotros lo estamos de ellos!
