The World Language courses are an important adjunct skill to any professional or technical career, complementing and enhancing this training. In our increasingly global society, understanding and speaking more than one language is an asset for travel, employment, and future education.

Note: In order to meet most college entrance requirements, it is strongly recommended that students complete three or more sequential years of high school world language courses.

The World Language Department offers courses to build proficiency in the areas of speaking and listening, writing, and reading, with a focus on developing oral proficiency. The department currently offers a four-year sequence of language study in Italian, French, Latin, and Spanish.
