The first two years of language study are devoted to acquiring the skills of conversation, grammar, reading and writing, as well as an understanding of the culture. The advanced levels include more comprehensive oral responses and the student examines more intently, the literature and culture of the country.
The ability to communicate with people from many different countries in an increasingly global economy has many advantages, including personal satisfaction and professional rewards. Whether in the public sector, private industry, or a service profession, knowing a second language is truly a remarkable skill that gives one an advantage when applying to many job opportunities. All world language classes require daily homework and frequent exams.
