Languages are part of the cultural richness of our society and the world in which we live and work. Learning languages contributes to a mutual understanding between people, a sense of global citizenship and personal fulfillment. Students learn to appreciate different countries, cultures, communities and people and, by making comparisons, they gain insight into their own culture and society.
The ability to understand and communicate in another language is a lifelong skill for education, employment and leisure in this country and throughout the world. Learning languages develops listening, speaking, reading and writing skills and to encourages young people to express themselves with confidence, independence and creativity.
