One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way - Frank Smith
To have another language is to possess a second soul - Charlemagne
The ability to learn, converse, and cooperate in two languages provides immeasurable benefits for the students at J.H. Sissons. Learning a second language helps to increase their understandings of cultural differences, helps them view issues and ideas from multiple perspectives, and helps to increase their own self-esteem. In turn, these feelings will lead students towards healthier relationships with their peers and other members of the larger community.
