Well, you probably heard it before: why should I learn another language when I can barely get through my first native language. But it’s not that it’s a struggle to learn but consider the effort and benefits of learning another language. Did you know that it can improve how a student can perform better on standardize testing, develop better reading skills, improve print awareness, and language skills. According to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, students that studied Spanish as a second language had substantial increase in language skills over those students that were not learning Spanish. It also helps students to understand and learn about other cultures in a positive way. So, I guess learning a second language can have its benefits.
