Programs Overview > Foreign Languages
FOREIGN LANGUAGES
Beginning in first grade, the children learn two foreign languages, French and German, in a playful and interactive environment. Through story, song, rhyme, and movement, children in the early grades become acquainted with different cultures and widen their horizon of human understanding by looking at the world through the eyes of others. Grammar and reading begin with imaginative games in the fourth grade and continue more formally in the higher grades. The children occasionally present short plays, songs, and poems in a foreign language at school assemblies.
