Elementary Education:

Elementary world language programs boost student achievement by improving evaluative functions, abstract thinking, and mental flexibility. In addition, world language programs promote the ability to communicate within another culture with understanding of that culture. The level of student attainment in proficiency, improvement in first language literacy, and cultural awareness will correspond with the depth of elementary programming.
