About

LHS World Languages Department

Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. The United States must educate students who are linguistically and culturally equipped to communicate successfully in a pluralistic American society and abroad. This imperative envisions a future in which all students will develop and maintain proficiency in English and at least one other language, modern or classical. Children who come to school from non-English backgrounds should also have opportunities to develop further proficiencies in their first language.


Mission: To provide students with the

  • ability to communicate in a language other than English.
  • knowledge and understanding of other cultures.
  • ability to communicate both orally and in writing.
  • confidence to use the foreign language outside of the school setting.

Students will learn through:

  • Group/Partner work
  • Development of their listening skills
  • Differentiated activities
  • Speaking the language in the classroom
  • Selected readings
  • Increased use of technology

Students have a wide range of abilities, backgrounds and experiences. This persity should be valued and will enhance the learning environment by allowing multiple points of view to be considered.
