The Beauty of Diversity

For most of us, the English language is simple and used every second of our lives. But, the world does not contain only the English language. There are so many areas in the world that we have not been exposed to directly, and therefore often forget about the many other existing cultures there really are.

The language classes available for students at East Brunswick High School are able to expose students to a sense of diversity in our community. Students not only learn the language itself but are also able to obtain information on what everyday life is like in areas besides the United States. At EBHS, the language classes offered include Spanish, French, German, Italian and Mandarin.

Teachers, as well as students would argue the significance of getting to learn a new language in their high school careers. Aribah Khan,11, is currently in AP French and agrees that taking these language courses has benefited her overall. Aribah says that “learning French for the past few years has taught me so much more than just how to speak a language other than English, and it has given me a taste of what a different culture is like, which I think everyone should be proud of getting to experience.”
