To: The Administration and staff of Wagon Wheel Elementary School From: Alex Doyle Subject: Foreign Language Requirement for Students Definition of the Problem: Our education system is lacking in the proper implementation of offering and teaching a foreign language to its students. Solution and Recommendations: I think in order to set the children of our education system up for the most successful futures it is important to have a foreign language requirement at a young age. “Recent brain research indicates that learning a second language is a powerful experience that helps the brain of young children develop” (Dumas ). Conclusion: Overall, it is seen through many studies that encouraging children between the third and fifth grade to study a foreign language will have many long term academic benefits for them. Works Cited Dumas, L. S. (1999). Learning a Second Language: Exposing Your Child to a New World of Words Boosts Her Brainpower, Vocabulary, and Self-Esteem. Child, February, 72, 74, 76-77.
