Foreign Language

To be successful citizens, we must have a broad understanding of the world in which we live. The study of languages other than English helps to build that understanding. The ability to be open to different ways of thinking and living, to speak in another person’s language, to understand and appreciate cultural differences---these are attributes of successful business people, politicians and statesmen, law enforcement officers, those involved in social services, civil servants, travelers and tourists, and people in many other endeavors are well. They are attitudes and skills learned in language classes.
