World Language

French, Italian, and Spanish - Grade 6


In this full-year course, students examine a language of choice in an exploratory manner to build basic skills that serve as a foundation for advanced language learning. The students will be introduced to listening, speaking, reading and writing in the target language. The use of audio-visual aids will strengthen the skills of understanding and communication; teaching students to communicate at a basic level.

French, Italian, and Spanish - Grade 7

In these full-year courses, the emphasis is on understanding, communicating, listening and speaking as well as reading and writing. The student is guided through stages of understanding, imitation, repetition, and substitution using contemporary dialogues. A variety of materials are used to introduce the student to the second levels of language study. Additionally, students will examine significant ideas, beliefs, and themes; organize patterns and events in Spanish, French and Italian. They will understand the commonalities and differences between world cultures and their own. They will be able to engage in meaningful conversation and compare other languages and cultures to language and culture in the U.S.

Level I - French, Italian, and Spanish - Grade 8

In this third year, full-year course, students will continue to practice and apply language skills. The approach to this objective is threefold; a comprehensive approach to developing reading, writing, listening, and speaking in a target language while honing those skills in English as well; a substantial focus on oral proficiency to provide graduates with the practicability needed to function within and outside the U.S. Students are strongly encouraged to become proficient in at least one language other than English to be on the cutting edge of a society which is increasingly becoming more multilingual.
