In this linguistically rich society, the average person’s knowledge of other languages is no longer a merely helpful skill, but a necessity for interpersonal interaction. Foreign language programs are common in U.S. high schools, but their benefits can be reaped at a much earlier age. As a result, this project highlights the advantages of learning foreign languages in elementary school, investigating bilingualism in the context of a culturally and communicatively diverse world.
