The World Language Department of St. John’s Preparatory School encourages students to achieve oral and written proficiency in a foreign language that can be applied to everyday life. Students will gain the necessary confidence to communicate in our multilingual society and the world. The World Language Department is committed to implement lifelong language skills to our students that permit them to function as global citizens of the 21st century. Students will increase their global awareness and develop an appreciation for the different cultures of our world.
Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons and Community are the principles incorporated in our everyday classroom lessons. Speaking is the most effective way we express ourselves in our daily activities. In our classes we strive for excellence in oral and verbal communication through a variety of innovative instructional methodologies. The goal of our department is to prepare today’s youth for the many social, economic and cultural opportunities found in the global marketplace.
