Foreign Language Studies involve the study of languages other than one’s own, and contribute to an awareness of cultural differences that are shaped by, and reflected in, language. The study of modern languages allows students to develop the ability to communicate with people of different cultures through speech or writing. The study of classical languages also enhances students’ general understanding of different cultures through the medium of written texts. In all cases, the study of another language contributes to a greater understanding of one’s own language, and to a fuller appreciation of the role of language and literature in human experience and thought.
