Educate YOUR CHILDREN 2day for the JOB REALITIES of 2morrow!

ALERT to parents of high school/middle school kids:
The number of students majoring in another language are falling worldwide.  In the UK alone there has been a 50% reduction and consequently they are closing language programs in major universities (from 105 to 62… 50%) and they predict closing another 40% in the coming future.
This newspaper article from the UK Guardian newspaper details this problem with real facts:

What does that mean to us? OPPORTUNITY!
Multilingual people are going to be needed in the future job markets worldwide.  French & Arabic particularly and probably also the Asian languages, Korean, Chinese and Hebrew as well. Google is owned by Israeli citizens and it’s mostly jewish people working there. Nothing wrong with it, just saying – Google is everywhere so look at the opportunities our kids (American kids) are missing out on.
Some things we can’t catch up on, Indians & Asians have a lock on tech jobs but not language jobs. Diplomacy, working in embassies, foreign offices, CIA, NSA etc, they need more multilingual spies…lol! Journalism, international business & marketing (with an international language degree) this is where the jobs are and will be. We’re always behind the curve, now we have a heads up that’s not difficult to achieve. Kids that learn every Lil Wayne lyric can learn foreign languages, easily – Lil Wayne and his ilk SPEAK a foreign language in their music!
Suppose YOUR kids start learning 2 more languages NOW… and take a minute and think about your adult children sitting at home LATER (like some of your friend’s kids) doing nothing!
Make sure you enroll them in a language class when they go back to school this year!

Cheapest way to get to Senegal (via the US & UK!)

Cheapest way to get to Senegal from the US:

Call Thomas Cook travel in Orlando and Las Vegas and find out when they have the cheapest flights to the UK. Sometimes you can get one for $100 out of Vegas. Subscribe to a service that will alert you for cheap flights to Vegas (or Orlando) again, $50 sometimes.

To get to Dakar, ask them how much from France to Dakar, again on TC travel (they are the cheapest of everyone) and then take the train to France, go to the airport and catch a flight directly here.

If you do it right, $500/$1000 round trip, max for the US!

Cheapest way to get to Senegal from the UK:

Call Thomas Cook travel in the UK and ask when their cheapest flight are to Gambia and schedule your vacation during that time. Book a flight from Gambia to Senegal (Air Arik, or Gambia Bird) and we’ll pick you up at the airport!

OR for a direct flight into Dakar (and save the time and money going thru Gambia), simply leave from France. Interestingly enough, Thomas Cook only flies into Senegal thru France, not from the UK.

See you soon!

See my GREAT BLOGS in the COMMENTS section! lol!

It’s 5:30am here… dateline Dakar, Senegal, West Africa and I just realized I’ve been posting blog pages in my comments section! Actually, I knew it when I did it but because I was barely coherent during the time I thought it was a good idea!

Now I see that’s sorta crazy and I was just sleep deprived from 30 days of fasting and getting up at the crack of dawn during Ramadan!

Maybe it was a stroke of genius… hmmmmm
