The Foreign Languages Department has adopted essential standards based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for Languages and offers a four-year sequential program in French, German, and Spanish. The primary goal of the Foreign Languages curriculum is to develop proficiency in all four language skills - reading, listening, writing, and speaking. Our faculty also strives to provide a comprehensive perspective on language that comprises the cultural, historical, and present development of the countries where the languages we teach are spoken. At the end of their College career, our students meet the requirements of Level B1-B2 according to CEFR. The IB courses are customized to respond to the individual needs of our international students and, so far, all our students have successfully passed the IB exams. The elective courses are designed to delve into various aspects of the languages taught and the cultures presented, expand the knowledge, and polish the language skills of our advanced students.
