Imagine waking up one day to a new reality. A world where English is only one of thousands of languages and 95% of Americans are left out the conversation. Realize that that day is today. In the world that we share 7 billion people, 75% don’t understand any English and the fastest growing economies across the globe are non-English speaking. How can we succeed?
Learning other languages and understanding the culture of the people who speak them is a 21st Century skill that is vital to success in the global environment in which our students will live and work.
Knowing another language enriches your personal life expands the range of professional opportunities open to you, and increases your power to act as a citizen of the world.
