Small World

A few years ago, my college revised its general-education program, creating something quite interesting and good for learning. In the process, though, foreign languages became an option, rather than a requirement. Reasons and excuses were given, but the real reasons are hard to know.

Fortunately, we have a lot of smart students who understand the value of foreign languages, so our courses have continued. The web page I created at the time of the debate is still available, and I am refurbishing it a bit for Round Two, as we open up the question again.
