Where will discovering languages take Jackson's students?
It can take them as far as they want to go. World language programs are more important than ever before. Research shows that language learning offers cognitive, academic, social, cultural and workplace benefits that last a lifetime. Let's increase global awareness and celebrate the power of language learning.
