Why here at RCTC?


Reasons why high school students are taking World Language courses at RCTC:

1. To get college credit and high school credit at the same time.

2. To satisfy future college exit requirements (such as the University of Minnesota's Liberal Arts General Education program).

3. To take a language which is not offered in high school.

4. To provide World Language for home schooled students whose parents do not speak a World Language.

5. One semester of college World Language is equivalent to one year of high school, so you get the same instruction in a shorter amount of time.

6. To have a class that will give honors credits to fulfill a high school Honors Diploma.

7. To get adjusted to the college environment before leaving home.

8. There are many high school students in college classes, so one doesn't feel out of place.

9. To experience a higher level of learning.

10. To take advantage of the college's flexible World Language schedule.

11. To take advantage of a smaller class size.

12. As with the college students, to learn the language for travel, to use in a future career, and to have on a resume which will be an advantage for future employment.
