6th Grade: Student Articles on the Importance of Languages


One of this year’s units in the 6th grade curriculum (6th and 7th grade for MandarinTrack) explores the importance of languages in the world and the opportunities they give us. As an international school, FAIS provides students the opportunity to learn English, French, German, Mandarin, and Spanish – and gain a broader, global perspective through the lens of language. 


After readings and discussions in this unit, students wrote an essay on why they think the current languages we offer are important, additional languages to consider adding to our program, and the overall importance of learning languages.
