The study of foreign languages provides advantages both to the individual and to society. These include a perspective on one's native language, as well as the fostering of a facility for learning other languages, international understanding, and industrial prosperity. In addition, the study of language reveals the close interrelationship between language and thought and language and culture. Thus the study of language has benefits which go beyond the traditional reasons given for language study. (AM)
