World Languages

Through World Language classes we deepen our appreciation and understanding of the world around us.

From Mandarin to Spanish to French, passionate faculty guide students through the five aspects of language learning: reading, writing, speaking, listening, and cultural context. This is done through a mix of in-class work, film festivals, the peer-led World Language Help Center, and travel abroad opportunities.

True to our Mission, World Language provides all students with the skills needed to communicate and excel in a changing world.
