Continuing the series on academic goals…
Foreign language is not currently a required subject under my state’s homeschooling laws. However, high-school level foreign language is an entrance requirement for most colleges (two years of the same language). This makes the study of a foreign language a very good idea.
Language study is also a good idea from the standpoint of getting along with the rest of the world’s citizens.
- learn the basics of classical Latin
- learn the basics of Koine Greek
- have an introduction to the main languages spoken throughout the world
- prayerfully select (at least) one major world language in which to become fluent
