Program Statement

Language and communication are at the center of the human experience. The United States must prepare students and future citizens to be successful communicators in a multilingual and multicultural global economy. The vision sets the stage for all students to be proficient in English and at least one other language.

Learners of language and culture:

  • communicate across cultures and in various settings
  • develop insight into their own language and culture
  • recognize language learning as a lifelong process
  • develop mental flexibility, creativity, divergent thinking, and higher order thinking skills
  • score higher on tests of basic skill
  • gain direct access to new information/content
  • make connections with other disciplines
  • are able to participate socially and economically in a national, multinational, and international community
  • demonstrate familiarity with contributions of other cultures
  • demonstrate an understanding and an openness to differences in people, cultures, and ideas
