This is an excellent award to have on one's transcript, as not only colleges look for biliteracy skills, but also future jobs as we continue to move towards a global society. Being biliterate is a necessary skill for many jobs! Biliteracy can also help with daily life encounters and travels!
For specific questions and/or more information, please contact Anne Lee, Department Chair of World Languages and Cultures.
