Foreign language study is all about learning how to truly communicate
And connect with others—an incredibly important life skill that can only be cultivated by interacting with people. When you master a foreign language, you can exercise your new superhuman power of being able to understand what someone is saying, recall the proper vocab and grammar, put that vocab and grammar into the proper context, and reply back—all on the spot and in a timely manner. You’ve connected. And that is what it’s all about.
There is a growing realization that languages play a vital role in development, in ensuring diversity and cultural dialogue, as well as in achieving the goal of quality education for all, and promoting cooperation, in building inclusive knowledge societies and preserving cultural heritage, and in developing society which will benefit science and technology for sustainable development.
For this reason, the Committee assigned the establishment of an educational facility specializing in teaching new languages, the most important of which are Somali and English.
