The Foreign Language Department prepares our students to live in a fast moving world which is also getting smaller. We strive to make them carry within them a multi-faceted «cultural person» that will allow them to communicate and relate effectively with the communities whose language they are studying. We teach them the foundation of our civilization and offer them all kinds of opportunities to become fluent. Not only are our modern languages taught in the target language but we have also built in our curriculum some immersion outlets like clubs, language-based overseas trips and exchange programs.
We offer Chinese, French, Latin and Spanish from beginning level to AP. To support our students and help them achieve their academic needs, we use some audio-visual materials from satellite to language lab. They read for content, meaning and discussion. Exercises in grammar, structure and composition provide writing experience. We believe that an important aspect of all our courses is the preparation for lifelong learning experience.
