Department Overview

  • All world language courses require that the student invest a considerable amount of time and effort on a daily basis in order to perfect pronunciation, master vocabulary and correctly manipulate grammatical structures.  The main emphasis is on the classroom experience as each course pays particular attention to the four basic language skills:  speaking, listening, reading and writing.  This is accomplished via the use of cassettes, videos, occasional class and individual presentations, readings and some formal writing.  Students will also learn about the geography and culture of countries where the languages are spoken.
