Become a Student of the WORLD
Learning a second language could expand your life and even help you earn more money.
There are lots of reasons to study a foreign language. For starters, admission to Florida’s public universities requires two courses in the same world language. So if college is where you’re headed, make sure you’ve checked those boxes before graduation.
Want to be a more attractive job candidate? With a second language on your resume, employers will know you can help their businesses expand into Egypt or open new plants in Peru.
And how cool would it be to ask passersby in Paris for directions to the Louvre or chat with shop owners in Shanghai?
If world language classes haven’t been part of your high school curriculum so far, don’t despair.
Consider taking free language classes through Florida Virtual School (FLVS), which offers year-round enrollment and 24/7 course availability with classes in Chinese, French, Latin and Spanish. Or check out these other ways to get started.
