Modern Language

Confidence in Communication

Middle School modern language classes are designed to build students’ confidence in communication; provide a solid framework of vocabulary and grammatical structures; and develop an appreciation of cultures beyond our own in order to ensure long-term interest and ability in foreign language.

At every level, modern language instruction encompasses technology. From audiovisual online textbook support to the creation of newscasts and songs, boys have the opportunity to experience and emulate primary source material. While regular review of focused nightly assignments is critical, the ultimate objective is for each boy to be able to function in a country where his language of choice–French, Spanish, or Chinese–is spoken.
