World Languages Department
The language courses emphasize listening, speaking, reading and writing in the target language. Students also become familiar with the history and culture of countries where the target language is spoken. As students progress in their study of a language, they acquire a greater command of complex grammatical usages and vocabulary in preparation for more advanced readings. Courses focus on helping students develop accuracy and fluency in the target language while fostering an appreciation for diversity and the unique contributions of other cultures.
