Why study a foreign language?
Which level should you take?
Most students begin high school with level I when they enter high school.
If you have significant previous experience with the language you wish to take, you may take a placement examination to enter at level II, III or IV, depending on your abilities and experience.
Which language should you study?
Success in a foreign language depends on your motivation and hard work. All of the languages require homework and studying outside of class. In all of our language classes we study both language and culture to help students enjoy learning. The greatest indicator of success is your personal interest.
