World Languages

The primary goal of the World Languages curriculum is the acquisition of the essential skills needed to communicate in meaningful and appropriate ways in a target language. This is achieved through a sequentially structured presentation of grammar taught in conjunction with multiple opportunities for daily practice in the areas of aural comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing. Learning a second language strengthens abstract and deductive reasoning skills and enhances the development of the cognitive flexibility needed to engage fully and joyfully in the learning process.

A secondary goal is the cultivation of an appreciation for and understanding of other cultures, traditions, and languages. Each goal recognizes the importance of nurturing the academic and personal growth of students by using a multi-faceted approach. The World Languages Department offers courses in Chinese, French, Latin and Spanish beginning at the introductory level and continuing through Advanced Placement.
