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 t he upper levels, students also develop the ability to read, analyze, and discuss literary works, contemporary texts, and films. Note: the overarching goal of the World Languages Program is to promote bilingualism; as such, students arriving at Kents Hill already knowing multiple languages, or students who are English-language learners, may receive language waivers. World Language courses are offered at the 100-500 levels.
