World Languages

Programs Overview

         In Prince George’s County ten (10) languages are offered.  They are French, German, Italian, Latin, Japanese, Russian, Chinese, Spanish, Arabic, and American Sign Language.  Students may take four levels in eight languages, up to seven levels in French and Spanish, and five levels in German, Japanese, Italian, Chinese, Latin, and Russian.  Advanced Placement may be offered in all high schools.

         The modern foreign language program is committed to objectives that develop communication skills.  Teachers focus on the Foreign Language National Standards aligned with Common Core, the 5 C’s: Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons and Communities, and Literacy.  Grammatical concepts and vocabulary are taught in the context of real life situations as students develop accuracy in communicating.  Students are also made aware of the career possibilities open to persons in many fields if they have knowledge and skills in a foreign language.  Students are encouraged to speak the target language from the beginning through many student-centered activities.

         In addition, special strategies are included in the curriculum framework to support the Maryland State Assessment Program.
