Modern Language

The languages taught in our Modern Language Department are offered for their educational value and potential vocational use. Through a working knowledge of these languages, students are able to contribute to society and gain insights into
various cultures. Students participate in curriculum and activities that provide acquisition of linguistic, reading, writing and communication skills.

In addition to teaching mastery of the target language, the Modern Languages department promotes an appreciation and understanding of different cultural groups who speak the target language through the study of customs, cultural differences, folklore, foods and history.
