How can you make the world a bit smaller? Learn a foreign language. When we know another language besides our own, it’s like bringing part of the world within our reach—the people, the culture, the places. Why settle for one tiny corner of the world when so much can be learned about the rest of it? SchoolhouseTeachers.com courses include Spanish, French, Latvian, Korean, Latin, ESL, and ASL.
