World Language Courses

Every student, especially if contemplating college, should take a foreign language course.  Although some colleges do not require a foreign language for admittance, most do. It is generally a good idea to take either two years of two languages or three years of one language to meet the minimum requirements of most colleges. All languages strive to develop a proficiency in comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing as well as an appreciation of culture.
