I walked around the school and took some snapshots of different learning outcomes for French at the various grade levels. Here's what I saw!

|I never did this in elementary school!|
One of my regrets as a speech pathologist is that I don't really know another language (my two years of high school Spanish don't count). My caseload has blossomed with languages---Spanish, Burmese, Bengali, Chinese. Even learning one other language in the early years (such as elementary school) greatly assists you in learning a third language as you get older. We all are in a world community. Languages are important for careers and life, so I'm so appreciative of the French program, and the quality of teaching I see daily. The kids and teachers love it, and ultimately, everyone will benefit.
