French, Debate, Forensics and Drama
can be important to opening doors to new opportunities
for students by teaching and practicing skills of
sound logic, effective communication, 
vocabulary expansion
and creativity in problem solving.

International writer Anne Merrett explains the value of learning a language like French best, when she wrote, "Learning a foreign language draws your focus to the mechanics of language: grammar, conjugations, and sentence structure. This makes you more aware of language, and the ways it can be structured and manipulated. These skills can make you a more effective communicator and a sharper editor and writer. Language speakers also develop a better ear for listening, since they’re skilled at distinguishing meaning from discreet sounds."  

Futhermore, research studies have linked increased IQ scores and increased college entrance exam scores to learning a foreign language.  French is an excellent language to consider learning because like Latin it is very structured with few irregular verbs or rule exceptions.
