Title: Hand Carrying Earth

Why take a world language?
Free Powerpoint Templates
  • Most colleges have a world language requirement
    for acceptance or graduation. Typical language
    requirements to enter are a minimum of 2 years of
    the same language at the high school level.
    However, bear in mind that this is a minimum
    requirement for application. Most students who
    are accepted have a minimum of 3-4 years of the
    same language at the high school level!

Free (FREE!) college credit
  • The UW system, in addition to many other private
    and public universities and colleges, offer what
    is called RETROACTIVE CREDITS. Retroactive
    credits are earned by taking a placement test
    in the spring at the college you will be
    attending. The test determines your language
    ability and in what level course you will be
    placed. You then take 1 semester of the level you
    placed into. If you get a B or better in that
    class, you then receive credit for that class and
    all the courses below it. Typically our
    students earn between 9-16 FREE credits this
    way. What a savings!!

Free College Credits in High School
AP Spanish
  • Another alternative is to take the Advanced
    Placement (AP) test. The AP test allows you to
    earn college credit without taking any class in
    college. How many credits you get depends on
    the college you attend and your score, but it
    could be up to the equivalent of an entire
    college class.

  • World languages can help you land your dream job!
  • There are MANY jobs which use a second language.
    For instance, did you know that for medical
    research, you will need French?
  • Are you interested in agriculture, business,
    medical research, dentistry, nursing, customer
    service, mechanics, engineering, tourism, law,
    finance? A second language may be necessary!
  • Flexibility Many employers want employees who
    have a variety of skills.
  • Marketability Knowing another language can help
    YOU get a job when other applicants dont have
    that skill.

More testimonials
  • -My Spanish minor gave me an edge when I applied
    to the college of nursing! Ive gotten to be able
    to speak to patients who don't speak any English
    and I'm positive it will help me get a job after
    I graduate. Haley, age 21, studying Nursing at
    University of Wisconsin Oshkosh

More testimonials
  • Spanish will be useful for my marketability as
    an educator or as any career. Foremost, this is
    because Spanish is widely spoken. Also because
    learning one foreign language increases your
    skill at acquiring more languages. And because
    just learning another language makes you more
    adept at dealing with ESL individuals. It's
    basically assumed that you have four years of
    foreign language when you apply to colleges. If
    I hadn't had four years, I would've had to take a
    foreign language to graduate. That's becoming a
    more and more popular practice at colleges, from
    what I gather. Better just to do it in high
    school! Michelle, age 20, studying Secondary
  • Education at The College of
    William and Mary
