Foreign Language curriculum is designed to develop listening, speaking,
reading, and writing competencies in a world language. The curriculum
is proficiency-based in that the emphasis is placed on students'
demonstration of those skills. To reinforce speaking and listening
skills, students will use the language laboratory on a weekly basis.
Furthermore, cultural literacy is a strong component of the curriculum.
Geography, literature, art, architecture, and everyday customs are also
incorporated into the study of language.
Foreign Language Department strongly encourages students to take their
learning experiences outside the classroom. To that end the department
sponsors exchange programs to Germany and Costa Rica as well as trips to
Greece and China, all of which which are designed to promote and
enhance global literacy.
