  • Children who have studied a foreign language in elementary school achieve expected gains and have even higher scores on standardized tests in reading, language arts, and mathematics than those who have not.
  • Children who have studied a foreign language show greater cognitive develop- ment in such areas as mental flexibility, creativity, divergent thinking, and higher-order thinking skills.
  • Brain researchers have discovered that a window of opportunity exists for optimal foreign language acquisition which diminishes after the age of 10.
  • Being proficient in a foreign language provides students with a much  greater skill set upon graduation from highschool, and therefore greater  opportunities both professionally and personally.
