Welcome to

Madame Meister's International Baccalaureate World Classroom

Why Should we learn to speak a second language?


     Good jobs in the 21st century will require a working knowledge of a second language.  We must continue to give our students every opportunity to compete for jobs in a global economy and to become happy, successful adults who contribute to the advancement of our society. Huntsville City Schools recognizes the importance of offering French in our school system beginning as early as kindergarten.  A monolingual country not only falls into isolationism but also becomes vulnerable to outside threats. Language study is thus a national security issue.
