Fluency in Second Language Recognized in Diploma

Some high schools give special recognition to students who can speak and read in two languages.

This distinction shows appreciation for cultural perspectives and celebrates diversity, along with making these students ready to succeed in a global environment. Listen to learn more about this new movement to honor fluency in a second language.
