Why should you take a World Language?
Ø Two years of a consecutive world language are required at many universities, and several state (UW-Madison and Eau Claire) and private universities are strongly recommending three-four consecutive years of a language.
Ø Three or four years of a world language in high school can earn you retro active credits in college – which means you do not pay for the college credits!
Ø World languages help you improve your English skills and do better on ACT and SAT tests.
Ø World languages are FUN to learn.
Ø World languages help you be more marketable in the work force.
Ø Taking a world language helps you speak, read and write in another language and learn the culture of other countries.
Ø German Club and Spanish Club all take trips to the country studied every other year and Ojibwe is an intricate part of our Northern Wisconsin culture.
Ø The teachers of world languages at LUHS are AWESOME!
