> I'm sure you're aware of this, but the high demand from foreign language students is likely because US colleges often have a foreign language requirement.

I read that to mean foreign nationals (non-native English speakers), not students studying foreign languages (which rarely have long essays for introductory courses). That people with poor English skills would use ghostwriting services (like the article author's clients) seems pretty intuitive.

Oh, I suppose that could be read either way but given the context you're probably right. Thanks!
