This project analyzes foreign language teachers’ attitudes towards learning a second language and the numerous student benefits associated with becoming bilingual. The scholarly research was narrowed to focus on four areas: cognitive benefits, academic benefits, cultural awareness and competency, and career opportunities. Foreign language teachers from the United States completed a survey intended to support, reject, or add additional insight to current literature on advantages from second language acquisition. Field participants included teachers from private and public universities, private and public secondary schools, and elementary schools. In most cases, the survey supported and added to the current literature on the benefits of second language acquisition.
