The purpose of world language education is to foster linguistic and cultural competence among students. This education equips students with the skills and understanding necessary to communicate effectively in languages other than their native tongue and to appreciate and respect diverse cultures from around the world. Through world language education, students develop language proficiency, including listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Additionally, they gain insights into the customs, traditions, history, and perspectives of various global communities. This exposure enhances their ability to engage in a globalized society, promoting intercultural communication, empathy, and a broader perspective on the world. World language education not only opens doors to personal and professional opportunities but also contributes to the development of well-rounded and culturally aware individuals.
