IS LEARNING A FOREIGN LANGUAGE REALLY WORTH IT?
America’s language skills seem to stem from this one question and, since 93% of all college students in the United States are not enrolled in a language course, we can only deduce that language learning isn’t worth the money, the effort, or the commitment.
It all starts when budget priorities are determined, when language education finds itself at the same level as art and sport. Does it deserve substantial fundings? Is there going to be a return on that investment?
