Foreign Language Reasons

Why should I take a foreign language?

  • Speaking a foreign language (such as Spanish) can make you a high commodity in the work force, especially in eastern North Carolina where the Spanish speaking population is continually growing.
  • Speaking a foreign language opens opportunities for you to participate in an ever-growing global market.
  • Speaking a foreign language can increase your communication and language skills as well as opening your mind to new cultural experiences.
  • Speaking a foreign language can expand your business’ clientele.
  • Speaking a foreign language is becoming a staple of education: North Carolina high school students are required to complete two levels of a foreign language before entering a university and most bachelor degrees require 2-4 levels of a foreign language.
