World Language

Understanding that languages are living and constantly changing, our World Language courses have students discover a variety of ways to speak one language, while also learning about cultural aspects and historical events. Through these studies, students begin the process of having a culturally relativistic perspective, building bridges instead of walls between their own language and the language of others.

No matter what grade a student is at, they may enter the language level that they fit best in. Students may partake in independent language studies online or take in-person Spanish courses on campus. These courses are tailored to meet a student where they are at, including readings or fill in the blank activities at different levels. Students gain confidence in their speaking skills and know that mistakes are allowed and okay.
