Welcome to the CHSN World Languages Webpage!

At North, we offer students the opportunity to study five languages:  Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, and American Sign Language.  In addition to offering a sequence of courses leading to the advanced Regents diploma, students have the opportunity to enroll in college level courses, IB courses, and AP courses.  Our goal as a department is to increase students' knowledge and understanding of the world around them and encourage students to become active global citizens.  

Although our languages aren't one
and the same,
the deeper language 
of our hopes and dreams
remains so
in our ceaseless pursuit
of worldwide peace and unity.

the sharing of languages,
through the communication
of cultures,
through the expression
of common visions,
we hope to salvage peace,
not destroy it;
unite, rather than scatter.
