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.)
