We believe that language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. They allow us to relate meaningfully with one another. The goals of our foreign language instruction are to enable students to communicate effectively in the second language, to understand the cultures that support the language, to see connections between language study and other disciplines, and to appreciate what it means to live in a global community.
The world languages classroom will provide an environment conducive to a successful language experience. A rich variety of standards-based strategies and resources will be utilized so that all students can experience both acquisition and learning. Instruction will include realistic and meaningful learning opportunities which provide challenging, engaging, and authentic activities that promote increased proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in the target language.
