Many public schools do not begin teaching second languages until high school, and all college students must study a foreign language in order to graduate from the university....
For a job or for travelling, you need to know foreign languages. Starting from the primary school, all the students are learning a foreign language.
UGA has designed its Risk Management & Insurance and International Business co-major to assist students in developing an in-depth understanding of the international risk management and insurance business arena. Students take courses in property and liability insurance, international business, benefits, marketing, management, finance, and others. Students must also satisfy an international immersion requirement such as a study abroad program, internship, or additional foreign languages. (Refer to the Pre-Business major for information on applying.)

I’ll give that to english, although portuguese do have some weird pronunciations now and then it’s nothing like english. But we do have sounds that, really, only a native can speak of all people trying to say the nh, lh, ã and õ sounds. I think I’ve heard one russian girl (oddly she had been learning portuguese for only about a year) saying it properly. It is usually very easy to tell if someone was born a portuguese speaker or learned it as a second language.
I think one of the things that makes English both difficult and interesting is that it’s based on two different languages with a third one thrown in just for fun. Old High German eventually gave us Anglo-Saxon with its differnt dialects and stylistic quirks, with a few Swedish pronouns if I’m remembering my class in graduate school. The language had a few centuries to kick around and change before the Normans added French to the mix.
A number of Activities Days see the girls taken off timetable for a fully immersive experience. Such activities allow for extended projects that would not be possible during normal lessons. For example, highlights from the biennial Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Day include an exhibition of a 9-metre-high rocket at School and a design-and-make-your-own-trebuchet workshop. We also organise a biennial Language Day, where pupils can sample a variety of languages, including Hebrew and Ancient Greek. Most recently, we introduced a Healthy Lifestyles Day, involving sessions on nutrition, relaxation techniques, physical activity and mental health awareness to highlight the need for a balanced lifestyle.
A critical feature of modern economics is the growing number of companies that transact business through international channels. The Economics and International Business co-major at UGA provides opportunities for students to learn about these international business processes and economic institutions. Coursework topics include business environments, strategic management, international immersion, international finance, information technology, and foreign language. All students must satisfy an international immersion requirement such as a study abroad program, an internship in International Business, or additional foreign languages. (Refer to the Pre-Business major for information on applying.)
An understanding of basic biological principles is crucial in interpreting the implications of environmental degradation, impact of genetic engineering and biotechnology, disease and forensic medicine, legal and ethical issues, and communication of that to middle and high school grades. Students take courses in science curriculum a& learning, teaching methods, technological capability, philosophy & leadership, and others from one of four science content specializations: 1) Biology; 2) Chemistry; 3) Physics; or 4) Earth Science. An internship provides practical learning and teaching experience.
I am a native English speaker who went to an English grammar school where I studied French, Latin and Spanish. I then spent 4 years at school in France becoming officially bilingual (and passing the French Baccalaureate). I then lived in Luxembourg and had to learn German. I have therefore had to learn 4 foreign languages (and been in English class in France!). That doesn’t make me a linguist but I do know what learning another language means.
Teaching careers are available in traditional middle and high schools, vocational-technical centers, alternative and magnet schools, and language study tech-prep programs. Graduates also find jobs in public relations, management, technical writing, publishing, business, and others that demand writing, interpretation, analytical, and problem-solving skills.
