Languages for a Global Society
In today’s global society, knowledge of a language other than English is essential. Businesses list the ability to speak a foreign language among their top ten desired job skills. Studying a language other than English will expand your child’s world. We live in an international tourist destination area, filled with opportunities for speaking a second language. Many of our students are able to use their language skills at work as they meet tourists and visitors from other counties. Language instruction in Ken-Ton begins in 7th grade with instruction every day.
