Dual-language programs give us reason to learn
from The Bellingham Herald
When someone learns to speak another language, they are learning more than how to conjugate verbs. Speaking a foreign tongue usually includes learning about another people's customs and culture. It goes a long way toward understanding each other — well beyond what you can get from popular online translators like Google translate or BabelFish. And it's not especially expensive. The dual-language programs offered through the Pasco and Kennewick school districts are good examples of totally emersing kids in the language — and culture — of their peers.
