      National Board Certification - Early Adolescence through Young Adulthood - World Languages
      Certification Description
      To study another language and culture is to gain an essential preparation for the future. The United States is inextricably linked to economic, social, political, and cultural realities around the world. Possession of the linguistic and cultural insights that come with study of world languages other than English is a requisite for citizens in the twenty-first century who wish to participate in the global community and marketplace and the worldwide neighborhood. The United States must recognize citizens who speak more than one language and who understand other cultures as assets to the nation. Cultural pluralism continues to characterize and enrich the United States. The diverse student body that finds its way to the nation's schools not only represents exciting challenges to educators but also is a valuable resource that affords the nation an opportunity to maintain and enhance its linguistic and cultural richness. The study of world languages fosters understanding of the intellectual and artistic heritages of other cultures, which ultimately encourages students to come to a better understanding of their own language and culture and their nation's complex cultural heritage.
