    Languages as a Core Component of Education for All Students

    In the 21st century, language learning meets real world needs:

     

    • Rewards learners with a resume differentiator – the ability to communicate and collaborate in another language across cultures and time zones
    • Provides access to information and collaboration in any field - including science, technology, engineering, mathematics; business; and health care
    • Develops critical literacies by practicing skills to understand, exchange opinions, and present ideas
    • Develops flexible and adaptable thinking, plus an ability to function in new and unfamiliar situations
    • Prepares learners to think and interact in a global community
