The purposes and uses of foreign languages are as diverse as the students who study them. Some students study another language in hopes of finding a rewarding career in the international marketplace or government service. Others are interested in the intellectual chal- lenge and cognitive benefits that accrue to those who master multi- ple languages. Still others seek greater understanding of other peo- ple and other cultures. Many approach foreign language study, as they do other courses, simply to fulfill a graduation requirement. Regardless of the reason for study, foreign languages have some- thing to offer everyone. It is with this philosophy in mind that the standards task force identified five goal areas that encompass all of these reasons: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Compari- sons, and Communities—the five C’s of foreign language education.
