Why Enroll in a Foreign Language Course?

A person who speaks more than one language is able to build better public relations with the outside world and help bring peace to the world through understanding. A foreign language is an ancillary skill in a career choice. The most important reason is because it enriches the student's life aesthetically.

Additionally, students who study a foreign language usually have: higher scores in English vocabulary; better results on standardized tests in reading; higher scores on tests of creativity; significantly higher scores on their SAT and ACT college exams; and higher achievement levels in college.
