World Languages Department Information

Philosophy:

The World Language Department strives to expand student knowledge of diverse cultures and peoples and promote world peace and a greater understanding of others and ourselves through the study of language. By reading, writing, speaking, and listening students become immersed in the language. While integrating technology into the classes the well traveled and enthusiastic teachers make the language learning more authentic and connected to real life situations.

Requirements:

The state of South Carolina requires one unit of a Foreign Language (or Occupational Education) to receive a diploma.  Most colleges and universities require a minimum of two to three years of the same language but recommend more. Commonly, colleges require foreign language classes as part of typical course study, but offer a placement exam where students can exempt out of language study. By continuing foreign language at the high school level, students increases the likelihood of testing out of the foreign language requirement at the college level.

World Language Offerings and Flowchart:

While students get credit for receiving a 60 or above, advancement to the next level is only recommended with a C or better as language learning is a cumulative process. To be placed into the Honors classes at the upper levels, students must have an A or high B in all the previous levels.
