A super expensive Ivy League education at Harvard may still deprive students of the knowledge they need to get ahead in this world.
According to the article, Colleges come up short on what students need to know to know in the Washington Post, even colleges such as Harvard don’t do as well as public universities in making students study foreign languages.
If Harvard, our most internationally renown university, doesn’t recognize the value of foreign languages, how will we get the rest of the country to wake up and realize that whether they like it or not: multilingualism is a must. Period. If Harvard isn’t going to teach you a foreign tongue, figure out how to do it yourself. My suggestion: start with music!
