Listed below are all of the foreign language classes available to high school students:

French 1, Spanish 1

These courses are designed for those students who plan to enter college and for those who have a real desire to learn a foreign language. The students learn the basic skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing for the purpose of communication. Level I is the first step toward the acquisition of a basic vocabulary, an understanding of fundamental structures, the development of accurate pronunciation and an acquaintance with the people and their culture. Emphasis will be placed on those materials, strategies and activities which will enhance the student's ability to function in the language. Oral and written assessments will be administered.

French 2, Spanish 2

These courses are recommended for those who have acquired an adequate foundation from the first-year course. Students in the second year of a language will continue practicing the communication functions introduced in Level I. Students will have many opportunities to practice the language in the four important skill areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing. The target language will be the primary language used in the classroom. Oral and written assessments will be administered. (PREREQUISITES: C in previous year of French/Spanish and department approval)

The third year of a language is designed to continue to develop proficiency in all four skill areas of the language.
