WJ World Languages Department
Karen Generose, Resource Teacher
The WJ World Languages Department offers courses in Chinese, French, Italian, Latin, Spanish and Spanish for Spanish Speakers.
Knowledge of a foreign language has great benefits. By learning the roots of words and new vocabulary, you will do better on the SATs. Also, since America is quickly growing as a multicultural society, a foreign language will allow you to communicate with more people in your future career.
Most importantly, learning another language broadens our tolerance of other cultures and makes us realize the influence other cultures have on us. Another language also helps us understand our own culture better as we compare the similarities and differences between another culture and our own.
