WORLD LANGUAGES & MUSIC
A foreign language experience offers a number of academic advantages to students. While the obvious advantages of learning about another culture and its languages are the main benefits, foreign language instruction provides helpful additional practice in social studies, current events, English and vocabulary. Furthermore, many colleges and universities view high school foreign language as an indicator of student ability. In fact, taking two years of the same foreign language fulfills the admission requirement set by the Illinois Board of Higher Education for admission into Illinois public universities.
