WHY study languages? Languages connect us to other people Speaking another language helps us to understand other cultures Speaking another language helps with the college admission process Speaking another language helps us to be successful in the modern workforce
World Language Program Goals: To gain proficiency in a spoken language To COMMUNICATE with others To gain an understanding of other cultures To gain an understanding of our own culture through comparisons
TARGET LANGUAGE • How much of the target language will you hear? • About 90% of the class will be conducted in the target language at all levels, starting at level I • At the higher levels, you may hear 100% target language use • ALL STUDENTS will be required to speakin the target language
How many languages can a student study? A student at WMRHSD must take two years of world language instruction in order to graduate A student can take more than one language at the same time (ex., Chinese I and French II) Studying more than one language is not confusing; it is actually easier.
Which languages are offered? CHINESE SPANISH FRENCH LATIN (Mendham only)
When is TOO late to change languages? It is never too late to change from one language to another It is never too late to ADD another language
