SP3 Course Description
The world Language department offers courses with two goals: to communicate at a basic literacy level in a language other than English and to demonstrate an understanding of an interrelationship between language and culture. The program is designed to build language proficiency through a sequence of courses in French, Italian and Spanish. Oral and written drills provide use of grammatical patterns with meaningful context. The student expands vocabulary and increases his ability of self expression in the target language. More emphasis is placed on reading and writing, while listening and speaking are still the primary concern and language infusion is implemented through classroom instruction. Increased language infusion is implemented within this course.
