Foreign Languages



The 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.

The 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.
