    WORLD LANGUAGE INFORMATION

    Are you eligible for the Seal of BiLiteracy?  If you have learned a language other English, either through family ties, travel or World Languages courses in CPS, you may be able to receive the Seal of BiLiteracy.  The Seal can get you up to 12 hours of college credit at certain Missouri Colleges and Universities, but more importantly, it is a designation that you can add to college applications and job resumes.  Employers are looking for speakers of other languages to fill positions here in Missouri, in the US and abroad.  By just knowing how to speak a second language, you can earn more money over the course of your career than your monolingual peers!  Be on the lookout for an invitation to participate on Monday, November 18th.
