Students going online to fill foreign language needs

By BRIAN JUSTICE, Tullahoma News

High School student interest in foreign languages has waned to the point that Spanish is the only regularly offered curriculum option, but a sophomore will soon be delving into new territory through a satellite program to study Japanese. The Board of Education approved Monday to allow Katie Wilson to take Internet language courses in a dual enrollment program through the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa to count toward high school language credit requirements. Katie’s not the first THS student to take dual enrollment language classes, but she is the first in the school system anyone can recall who opted to study Japanese.
