World politics, commerce, culture and migration place heavy demands on the American citizenry for foreign language skills which years ago were not necessary. In order to meet these demands, the Randolph Township School District provides a wide choice of language offerings. The goals for all modern languages offered require the mastery of the language with five areas of emphasis: speaking, comprehension, reading, writing, and understanding the culture of the people whose language is under study.
In today's global community, the study of a second language is an indispensable attribute of an educated person. The Department of World Languages offers a multifaceted, comprehensive language program. The curriculum encompasses interpersonal communication, interpretive communication, and presentational communication while emphasizing the interrelationship between the language and its respective culture. Moreover, multiple language acquisition enables the individual to reflect upon and gain insight into the student's own language and culture.
