Taking a second language widens your knowledge of other countries and cultures, and it immerses you into subjects that you may not otherwise lean about in regular classes
Why take a second language?
Taking a second language course provides you with opportunities to see other countries!!! I'm going to Spain for an exchange trip next year!!

Taking a second language can open much more opportunities towards someone's future, from universities to interacting with different cultured people or traveling.

Learning a language leads to new adventures, new people, and new loves to be discovered.

I am currently in my last year of Neuroscience at the University of Alberta. Despite being a science student, pursuing languages both in high school and university has done nothing but open doors for me. These classes gave me the opportunity to interact one-on-one with professors and classmates in a small classroom environment, and proved me invaluable opportunities to communicate with people I have met abroad.
