World Languages -- Standards

Vision Statement:

Studying another language and culture provides powerful keys for successful communication: "knowing how, when, and why, to say what to whom" (National Standards, 1996). The organizing principle for language study is communication, which highlights the social, linguistic, and cultural aspects of language. The approach to second language instruction endorsed here is designed to facilitate meaningful interaction with others, whether they are on another continent, across town, within the neighborhood, or in the classroom.
