WHY LEARN SPANISH?

Why learn a foreign 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.)
