Foreign Language Policy in the U.S.
All Elementary Schools Now Teach Foreign a Language
Why All Schools Have Hopped on the Bandwagon
With jobs these days requiring travel to foreign countries and with the necessity to be able to communicate with other people in these foreign countries, schools all over the U.S. are now promoting foreign language learning to elementary schools. Schools know that the kids are our future and in order to get good jobs later on, kids are most likely going to need to know a foreign language. This is why almost 90% of school districts now have a foreign language program that starts from the moment you begin school.
