  • World languages at OLSH:
    • prepare students to participate in our increasingly global community.
    • establish connections to other academic disciplines.
    • promote the appreciation of other languages, cultures and diverse ways of thinking.
  • Students are required to take three world language credits, two of which must be earned consecutively in the same language.
  • Technology enhances education in the world language department via interactive vocabulary and grammar games, and the use of a variety of apps for the Chromebook.
  • Projects, including the creation of Day of the Dead decorations, crèche scene pieces and Mardi Gras floats, help students better understand the culture related to the languages they are studying.
  • The department helps to coordinate cultural experience trips abroad in the summers; recent destinations included France, Spain, Costa Rica, and Italy.
  • Students in Honors French IV and Honors Spanish IV can earn college credits through Duquesne University.
