World Language

Philosophy of World Language Education
Township of Ocean Schools
 
 

“Why should any nation limit its horizons to a single language when the global economy rewards those who accommodate diversity?”   (Crawford, 1995).

The Vision

The mission of the world language program is to develop students’ ability to use language in real-life situations and to expand their ability to interact with members of other cultures.  In the process, students will tain a greater understanding of, and compassion for, the cultural practices and products of different countries as well as the linguistic and cultural diversity of the United States.  As such, the goals of our program are for students to:
 

  • Communicate in a world language within our society and the world.
  • Develop an appreciation of different cultures.
  • Become contributing members and lifelong learners in a global society.
  • Prepare students to use world languages in their career choices.

  • Meet the appropriate proficiency benchmarks as per ACTFL standards in the following modes of communication:
    Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational.
