**Bible Study – Design your own study for Bible, or use a Christian curriculum publisher. You might visit a Christian bookstore to select topical studies.

**Foreign Language – Most colleges require two years of foreign language studies. However, check with the admissions office of a potential college to find out their specific requirements. Many students can easily begin their foreign language studies in college.

Tutoring is an option chosen by many families if a foreign language must be mastered prior to high school graduation. Local community colleges offer evening and weekend classes in conversational language. These can be challenging and fun.

Berlitz is a familiar name in foreign language instruction. Look for their curriculum on computer software as well as audio tapes.

 

The Learnablesis another “user friendly” foreign language program. It offers about seven different languages with tapes and books and is available through the Timberdoodle company.
