In the interest of national security, the US government is giving three states money for a new project to teach foreign languages such as Arabic, Chinese and Spanish. The pilot program likely will strengthen national security by improving US relations with other countries and helping new immigrants, said Robert Slater, director of the National Security Education Program in Washington. Texas, Ohio and Oregon will receive $333,333 each for the program, which is backed by the US departments of commerce, defense and labor, The Columbus Dispatch newspaper reported.
