At Honors Academy we include French from third grade on because we believe that learning a third language will expand student opportunities in life. Learning a third language will enable students to develop a good accent and fluency in all three languages. The earlier a child learns a third language, the more likely the child will more quickly attain high level language proficiency. French is the only language besides English that is spoken on all five continents, it’s also a major language used in both the technological and business worlds. It opens doors to careers in teaching, business, diplomacy, translation, interpretation, travel and more. We believe our students are capable of learning a third language, and as in everything we do, we will strive for excellence.
