NY Smart Start Language Olympiad
Updated: Feb 20, 2018
We are happy to announce that NY Smart Start will have two students participate in the Russian Olympiad on March 5th, 2018.
At NY Smart Start, we believe that linguistic abilities allow students to enhance their comprehension of the world.
Studies of tens of thousands of high school students have found that students who have studied foreign languages perform better on the American College Test (ACT) for English and Mathematics. Additional studies have found that SAT-verbal scores improve with the length of time students have studied the foreign language. So if you want your child to ace those tests, encourage her to learn a foreign language.
At the end of the day, isn’t this why most people learn a second language? When you can speak to people in their own language you deepen connections and understanding. Learn a foreign language as a child and you have a lifetime to benefit from cross-cultural friendships, broader career opportunities, exciting travel adventures and deeper insights into how others see the world.
Our school offers multiple language programs for our private school students, as well as tutoring students.
