4 Benefits to learning another language-Learning another language is your childs passport to the world!
Preparation for college… At least two years of the same foreign language are required for university admissions in many States. (Some colleges and universities ask for three, even four years!) What’s more, studies show that students with three or more years in a rigorous foreign language program are more likely to earn better grades in college and are less likely to drop out. Plus, high school foreign language classes prepare students for advanced instruction in college.
Competitive edge in the marketplace… In a global marketplace, knowing another language and being able to communicate with others around the world can open doors.
Personal satisfaction… Learning about other cultures helps students expand their personal horizons. Studying a new language and communicating with people in their own language— for travel, for business, or just for fun— can be enriching.
