World Language

Our goal is to educate students in a language and culture in order to make them a knowledgeable and active members of a global society. Students will learn to use French and Spanish for meaningful communication in both spoken and written form. We will emphasize the language as it is used in real-life situations that they will most likely encounter. Through their foreign language study, students will develop sensitivity to the cultural and linguistic heritage of other groups, understand their influence on American culture, and become prepared to participate in a society characterized by linguistic and cultural diversity.
