World Languages

The World Languages Department aims to develop competency in the four areas of language skill: listening, reading, speaking, and writing, and to provide students with an understanding and appreciation of cultures other than their own. Students acquire a working knowledge of essential grammatical structures and learn to speak and understand the language in the context of specific, real-world outcomes. In the upper levels, students also develop the ability to read, analyze, and discuss literary works, contemporary texts, and films. 

Featured Course: Advanced Beginner Spanish

This course begins with a review of the skills taught in Beginner Spanish and then builds upon those skills throughout the school year. The same, multi-modal methods are used to help students continue to develop their ability to read, write, and speak Spanish. Emphasis is placed on grammatical accuracy and conversational fluency, while students continue to develop their knowledge and understanding of the Spanish-speaking world and its diverse cultural contributions.
