• PHILOSOPHY

    The World Language Department prepares students for the demands of an interdependent world by:

     Teaching World Language for communication.

     Heightening students’ linguistic and cultural awareness of their local, state and world communities.

     Encouraging interdisciplinary connections.

     Preparing students for using a world language(s) in the careers they choose.

    The goal of the world language curriculum at Ramsey High School is to recognize and emphasize the context and purpose of communication. Courses are designed to address all three communicative modes: interpretive, interpersonal and presentational. Through thematic design and communicative-based instruction, department courses will prepare students for authentic language use in the real world.
