Languages do matter!

Over 15,000 views!

I am beyond delighted that so many of you have read my thoughts from the heart on the decreasing opportunity for students to learn another language — a skill demonstrated to have personal, professional, social, and global benefits.

Many thanks to all who have taken the time to read and to comment on my article, “Foreign language classes becoming more scarce,” and special thanks to The Conversation for the opportunity.

Opportunity to learn other languages is an important issue, along with the action steps needed to ensure that all interested students have the opportunity for continued study of another language.

Please continue to let me know your thoughts!  🙂
