Modern and Classical Languages


The Department of Modern and Classical Languages offers five years of Spanish, five years of French and four years of Latin. Annually, approximately 75% of Wahconah's 550+ students study one or two languages. The goals of the modern languages include: working toward fluency in speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills needed to cope with the demands of doing well with another form of communication. Classical language (Latin, Greek) students will focus on all of these skills as well, with the exception of speaking.

This department always views its curricula as "works in progress" meaning that what students are learning is under constant scrutiny, review, and when, necessary, revision. The department selects quality texts, and technological supplements to assist teachers in their pedagogy.  The faculty participate in numerous professional organizations, including local, state and national language clubs. They attend conferences and make professional presentations to colleagues at times.

Students of a second or third language at Wahconah are able to participate in language-related field trips, and belong to language-related clubs. In the past they have attended ethnic dance, ethnic theater, and classical language events.
