The Spanish program’s mission is to provide students with a strong foundation to develop their language skills in Spanish according to the Five C’s from the World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages created by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL): communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities. Students will acquire language proficiency through the three modes of communication: presentational (speaking, writing), interpretative (listening/watching and reading), and interpersonal (speaking and writing). Furthermore, students will produce the language, exchange information, and negotiate and clarify meaning in Spanish by analyzing and discussing daily life situations and academic topics related to the history and culture of the diverse Hispanic world.
