The World Language Department offers courses in both Modern (French & Spanish) and Classical
(Latin) languages. Through the study of a second language it is the overall goal of the world language
department that each student‘s achievement aligns with the KRHS Mission. Thus, the major goals of the
World Language Department are:
- To empower students to develop academically as inquisitive, critical, independent, and cooperative learners.
- To instill in students an awareness, respect, and appreciation of the culture(s) of the language(s) they are studying.
- To enable students to develop an appropriate level of proficiency and communicate effectively in the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing at the respective levels (listening and speaking will be emphasized more in the areas of French and Spanish languages than in the area of Latin).
- To encourage and nurture individual student talents and abilities through the study of languages.
- To enable students to appreciate multicultural differences and make connections with their own culture.
Many colleges and universities require two levels of the same world language; however UNH and other institutions prefer three to four levels. When students have mastered the core foundation of one language, we encourage students to elect an additional language. World Language courses are elective courses and thus it is expected that each student be an active participant in the world language class and that the student agree with and demonstrate a commitment to meeting the goals of the course.
