• CLASS INFORMATION:

    WORLD   LANGUAGES

    Students planning to attend college are strongly advised

    to schedule a minimum of two credits of one world language

    and are encouraged to take more. Students applying to

    more competitive universities should complete four credits

    of a world language in order to satisfy more demanding entrance

    requirements. The study of world languages increases

    employment opportunities, helps in the understanding of

    foreign cultures, enhances English skills, and provides a new

    perspective on our own culture.

    A strong emphasis is placed on reading, writing, speaking

    and understanding the world language. Quizzes, tests, and

    writing assignments are given frequently.

    The World Language Department offers three languages:

    French, German and Spanish. Students may begin the study

    of French, German, and Spanish in the ninth grade. Achieving

    proficiency in speaking, listening, reading, writing, and

    culture is the goal of the World Language Department.

    In order to increase the probability of success in beginning

    World Language study, it is strongly recommended that

    students have English courses of CP or higher.
