Social Studies


The World Languages Department enables students to bring their communication skills to a whole new level. Just as students work to perfect their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills in their first language; new language learning activities work to perfect the same skills. However, students start the new language acquisition process from the ground up. In addition, students will identify communication differences within the diverse areas in which their new language is spoken because of cultural differences presented through the study of cultural practices, products, and perspectives. For that reason, world language students better understand the diversity of all global cultures in all language groups, including English. National, state, and local standards for world language learning represent the learning process as interconnected circles including communication, culture, communities, connections, and comparisons.
