Foreign Languages

We teach 4 out of the 6 official U.N. Languages.  Four official languages of the United Nations, used in intergovernmental meetings and documents, which RLA teaches to students are English, Chinese, Arabic, and Spanish.

RLA provides students with a high command of foreign languages. Language acquisition research shows that second language acquisition helps improve students‘ cognitive skills, broaden their perspectives and bridge the cultural gaps between students, parents, and teachers.  According to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, “language and communication are at the heart of the human experience”.

Learning a second language has many advantages, which include:
 An increase understanding and compassion for other cultures.
 Students achieving greater divergent thinking, creativity, and cognitive development compared to monolingual children.
 Delay the onset of dementia
