HHS • FOREIGN LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT
Bienvenue! Willkommen! Salvete! ¡Bienvenidos! If you prefer something a little closer to home, WELCOME to Hanover High School's Foreign Language Department. We've prepared this new website to help students, parents/guardians, and community members get to know who we are and what we do. While some of the pages are still under construction, we hope you'll find the information herein useful.
The continuing objective of the language program at the high school is to provide the best possible preparation for all students as individuals. Their personal goals, abilities and aspirations, and the expectations of their parents and the entire community, guide the nature of the language offerings.
German, French and Spanish classes emphasize language as a means of verbal communication through practice in speaking and listening, and also offer extensive development in reading and writing. Latin classes emphasize language as a means of exploring the ancient world and of investigating its abundant connections to the modern one. In addition, students of both the modern and the classical languages also become acquainted with the geography, history, literature and art of her/his particular people. Periodic cultural trips are offered to France, Quebec, Germany, Italy and the Mediterranean world, Spain, and Latin America.
Students are advised on course selection by their current language teacher, who must approve their course registration sheet. Students not currently taking a foreign language should see the department coordinator. Students who would like to prepare for the Advanced Placement exams in a particular language should refer to the Advanced Placement opportunities section of the HHS handbook and meet with the specified contact teacher.
For more general queries, please contact our Department Coordinator, Brian Glenney, by email or phone (603)643-3431 ext. 2610.
