Own only what you can always carry with you:
know languages, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag.
~Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

The world language faculty prepare students to communicate in a different language, and develop knowledge and appreciation of culture through a rigorous curriculum that encourages the appreciation of diversity. Faculty members seek to impart to students the practical knowledge of a world language, and thus, a greater understanding of the global community. Through the steps of listening, comprehending, speaking, reading and writing, students gain a deeper understanding of and appreciation for other peoples, their cultures and languages.

At the beginning levels students learn basic vocabulary and grammar structures used in dialogues which increase gradually in difficulty as the students advance. Communication is the object of all languages; therefore, common language reflects common culture, history, attitudes and identity of a people. Acquiring knowledge of a second language enables students to better understand their fellow global citizens who may be linguistically and culturally different. Language is the essential bridge between individuals and nations, and can only be developed through communication.

Honors level courses are provided for level 2 courses and higher as well as Advanced Placement Spanish.
