The study of world language helps develop students into well-rounded, multi-dimensional individuals who have both knowledge and appreciation of world cultures and civilizations and a tolerance and acceptance of the cultural differences of various peoples!


     “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.”

    ~Nelson Mandela
