Our world is growing ever more connected; students will have an advantage if they are able to nurture those connections through the understanding of foreign languages and cultures. In this course students will look at how ancient languages and cultures have influenced us today. They will be introduced to vocabulary in the Latin, Hindi, and French languages as well as to ways to study these new words. They will learn about common language concepts such as the formality and gender of words and the use of different alphabets and sounds. As a combination of foreign language and social studies this course gives students a chance to sample a variety of languages before choosing a focus as well as providing bridges to understanding the world at large.
The instructor recommends following (or preceding) this course with Viewpoints B in which students will continue their explorations with the German, Spanish, and Japanese languages and cultures.
Ms. Rachel believes this introduction to the study of foreign languages and cultures should be fun! Along with learning greetings and other vocabulary, we will have lots of hands-on craft projects, and students will be encouraged to earn the World Connections Through Cuisine Award (yum!).
Ms. Rachel will be mailing each registered student a VIEWPOINTS workbook before the course begins.
NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by August 20th to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.
