The purpose of the Cobb County School District's World Languages Program is to encourage the appreciation of cultural values; to enable
students to learn to communicate in another language; and to prepare them to successfully enter and compete in an increasingly global society.
Our schools offer a variety of modern and classical languages, including:
||Highly valued for military and government jobs. High political importance.
||The US’s biggest market and competitor. International Business and Government jobs both from USA and in China.
||Highly valued for military/government jobs particularly in Africa and Middle East
||Beneficial if involved in engineering, research. Strongest European market
||International business and government sector – especially technology, auto, and electronics sectors
||Valued for developing foundational skills for other languages and for acquiring an understanding of the development of the legal, political, and social systems of the Western world.
||Brazil emerging as an economic power and target for international business.
||A plus to offer US employers serving US market. International job opportunities focused on Central & South America and Europe.
The Office of World Languages does not endorse the study of any one particular language; both modern and classical
languages are considered to be important cornerstones of any academic curriculum.
Each local school has the authority to limit the number of students enrolled in a particular language, due to teacher allotments and
budgetary constraints. Every effort will be made to place students in their first or second choice of world language study.
