  • Ensuring Your Position in Your Potential Career Field

    If any person is even remotely considering the medical field as a possible career, then they need to know another language. The majority of medical terminology is Latin, which just so happens to be the base of many languages. More specifically, the Romance languages such as Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Italian. The languages are then the bases of many languages, or are the national languages of certain countries. So, when a doctor decides to work in the doctors without borders program, they will have a better chance of working more efficiently in that specific country.

  • Foreign language will help student to compete in the worldwide

    In this globalisation era, there's no limit anymore among every country in the world. What we need to do is to ensure that our generation able to compete in the worldwide in order to increase their and our welfare. But we have to remember that competing with another country in this world, we have to be able to turn into their society. And what do we need is to be able to speak in foreign language, especially international language. So, that's why, foreign language is needed to be taught.

  • Yes, they should be taught

    Foreign language skills can open up a lot of doors in the workforce after school, students should have the opportunity to learn them. Most won't take it, I know I didn't, I didn't even do my required foreign language courses in college until my last semester as a senior, but some students really do use it.

  • Learning languages is hard on your own.

    It is extremely difficult to learn a language on your own, while if you take a class in school you have everyday to learn about it. Also there are many useful languages such as Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, French, German, and Spanish. It could also help you in Language Arts for word roots and help you understand a culture better in social studies.

  • Foreign languages help expand knowledge and decrease ignorance

    Language is one of the greatest gifts that this world has offered us.
    There are many benefits to learning a different language. Such as, obviously learning a language different from your own, it makes travelling easier, sometimes you learn more about the language such as history, dialects and the way in which people speak and the lifestyle of those people. It could make it easier to learn and identify other languages if there are similarities for instance, if you're learning French you will notice that there are similarities in German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and English. Learning a new language can also help the fight against stereotypes and makes you more aware of your surroundings and of the cultures and lifestyle of others thus, decreasing ignorance.

  • Too Much To Learn

    While learning a foreign language can be beneficial, it can also be a huge waste of time. It's super confusing for young kids, and it's very expensive too. It feels as though you're starting your life all over again. It takes forever because learning a new language is like having to know hundreds and thousands of words we have to learn about in limited time.

  • Waste of time

    As a high school student I can personally inform you that whilst learning a foreign language can be beneficial it is can also be huge waste of time! What percentage of students who learn a foreign language use that knowledge in their adult career. If schools spent more time teaching core subjects e.g. math, science, etc, than students would have more fundamental skills required for their future lives rather than wasted time learning a foreign language that they were never to use.

  • No no no

    Really really no no no no no no no no no no no no no no nnnnnooooo no bo bvjk mn m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m

  • Makes no sense, a waste of time.

    There is no point in wasting you time in something you will not use in real life, and you wont even learn it completely. Also, schools offer bogus languages like Swahili or Latin. Staring at a wall would be more productive. Not to mention, there are some extremely important thing that could be taught in this time that aren't being taught, like job interview skills, persuasive skills, how to run a family, blah blah I could go on all day. I think language is definitely a unique subject in this world, but it is foolish to offer it as a full credit course. Almost everybody forgets it all when they graduate.

  • Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo nooo noo

  • I hate French

    Wasting time to learn a foreign language in school won't help kids because kids only have a limited amount of time and learning hundreds of thousands of words won't work and what's the percentage that a person that knows French will walk up and talk in French and not in english

  • It should be a thing all schools do

    I think its necessary to learn foreign languages.It helps develop social skills with people who speak different.All of the opposing people say its a waste of time.What time time for Fortnite or PUBG. I mean come on here people you probably are just a bunch of nerds sitting in a chair.Im joking i play to.

  • French is enough

    I live in Canada I'm eight yrs old and I'm in fourth grade . In my school when you're in grade four they start teaching you French. Even though I'm beginning and French is fun it's kind of stressful. I also have to learn Hindi. I don't want to put everyone else under that burden. So I say ,we keep French and get rid of the rest🙏

  • It should be required

    To begin with, by learning a foreign language there is a greater chance to get a job quicker. Many companies and office are looking for people that know more than one language so that they can communicate with the customers. It can help with making sales, negotiating, and have the opportunity to get promoted. Foreign language is important to the work force because many English speaking businesses do not bother grasping other languages. According to,Omniglot.Com, it explains that in meetings people would use interpreters to discuss with one another about business. However, it states that “it puts the English speaker at a disadvantage because the people on the other side can discuss things amongst themselves in their own language without the English speakers understanding, and using interpreters slows everything down.” This means that people feel more adequate talking with others that speak their language.

It is important that students should learn and develop a linguistic ability to read and study other languages since it helps in creating cultural harmony between people from different backgrounds. There are many online degree programs that are being offered to help students with this http://www.Woodbridgeuniversity.Com/programs/
