We were at Career Day at Oceanside High School – East this morning. The event was offered by Jobs for Maine Graduates. What a great chance to tell young adults how important it is to learn a language. It doesn’t matter if you major in a language. What’s important is that everyone learn a language other than their native tongue. Young people will be that more more employable, particularly in today’s global economy.
We spoke with several students and teachers who are interested in learning languages, learning about different cultures and volunteering at the school. Students will certainly get their community services hours met and many signed up to be contacted. A super bunch of young people with some fine aspirations.
