Foreign Languages

Today the world is getting smaller and learning a foreign language is a way to have a better understanding of this world and to see it as new. For instance, many European countries begin early teaching their children to learn a foreign language. They know and understand that someone is as many people as the language he speaks. Effectively, a person who speaks one language will be only one. If someone, however, speaks three languages he is as useful as three people. Then, he has the ability to communicate with almost every person he meets. When someone speaks only one language he is limited to speaking to people who speak that same language. With the world becoming a global village, speaking only one language is no longer a good idea since that can shut people out. Moreover, the business world is in need of people who are multi-lingual because of the global economy. With more than one language anybody will be an asset to any business and employers will even pay more for this asset. Community Rehabilitation and Resources Center, Inc initiates a flexible French/Creole program where anybody can learn without difficulty. This program is available to kids, youth, and adults. Fundamentals of the French/Creole language emphasizes grammar, composition, conversation, listening, reading, speaking, and writing.
