"People need to see that, far from being an obstacle, the world’s diversity of languages, religions and traditions is a great treasure, affording us precious opportunities to recognize ourselves in others.”
-Youssou N’Dour, MusicianCentral Bucks World Languages courses allow students to study one language for several years so that the language can be used as another learning tool. The language being taught will be the language of the classroom. Beyond the expected learning of reading, writing and speaking the language, students learn how people live in other parts of the world. The knowledge of how other people work, play, raise families, and run governments can be valuable in many classes outside of the World Languages Department. The possibilities of using world language skills in a career cannot be ignored. Many government and international business jobs demand second language ability. While Central Bucks emphasizes achieving proficiency in at least one world language, successful world languages students are encouraged to study as many world languages as possible!
Note: As in all subjects, world languages courses with an enrollment of fewer than twenty students may be cancelled.
