Today, St. Thomas Aquinas High School inducted students into the World Language Honor Society. These students have focused their attention, aptitude and power of inquiry to expand their horizons both literally and figuratively. Learning to communicate in another language means more than simply studying a different subject. It means intentionally walking through a door toward global opportunities and actively acquiring the tools needed to embrace our common humanity through language.
“Learning to talk with one another is so important,” remarked Principal Marquis. “To be able to do that in other languages is special. Do your very best not to lose that. Also, the world can be a very big or a very small place. It’s all about perspective. If you haven’t yet, get your passport and keep it up to date.”
In a world where text messaging, Snapchat, and video have become primary methods of communication among teenagers, we hope our students always prioritize personal interactions, face-to-face expressions, and body language. And may they use their language abilities as instruments of understanding and peace.
