WHY LEARN SPANISH?
Why learn another language?
There are many reasons for studying a language for two or more years:
Students should learn a foreign language to better understand all people, their culture, values and traditions.
Research has shown that the study of a foreign language helps students better understand their own native language and enables them to perform better in other subjects. Learning a foreign language improves reading scores in English as well as mental flexibility, creativity, and high level thinking.
Students of foreign languages perform significantly better and score statistically higher on standardized tests conducted in English (NECAP, SAT, ACT etc.)
Benefits of Foreign Language Learning:
