STATEMENT OF PURPOSE Sample paragraph Foreign languages are required in high school in order tograduate. I had no idea what language I wanted to choose. I alwaysthought French was a beautiful language, but how often would I use it inlife? My mom insisted that I take Spanish because she figured it wouldbe more useful in my future career. Many people in this area speakSpanish as opposed to French. My mom figured I would have more jobopportunities if I were fluent in Spanish. Like all kids, I did exactly theopposite of what my mom wanted. I chose French instead of Spanishbecause my best friend was taking French. After taking two years ofFrench in high school and four semesters in college, I can speakapproximately 20 words in French. Had I taken Spanish, I could havehad more opportunities as a bilingual teacher in elementary education.
