Our foreign language curriculum is based on the National Foreign Language Standards. The elements of the Foreign Language Standards incorporate the five C’s:Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. It is divided by levels of Readiness, Foundations and Essentials with each level having its own set of objectives.
The goal of this curriculum is to develop positive attitudes and excitement toward learning foreign language. Through the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing, students are able to broaden their awareness, acceptance and understanding of different cultures.
This program is designed to accommodate varying levels of language learners as they progress through the stages of the National Foreign Language Curriculum.
Due to the varied ability of language students within our school, this curriculum has been formatted in a non-graded fashion, appropriate for all learners, K through 8.
