Modern Language

The primary goal of the Modern Language Department is authentic communication. Students will use the four language skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) to achieve proficiency in the language that they are studying. Students actively engage in meaningful conversations, gain knowledge and understanding of other cultures, and learn the value of using a language beyond the classroom.
