Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

This paper evaluates research to determine possible benefits and problems with early childhood foreign language education. It examines multiple studies conducted by different researchers in different settings to determine the key components of these programs and the expected outcomes. Using a poll as an instrument to measure, district opinions in foreign language programs are assessed; recommendations to slowly move towards early-start programs are suggested.
