Program of Studies
for the 2018 - 2019 School Year


World Languages

The goals of the West Hartford World Language Department are to enable students to communicate effectively in languages other than English, gain knowledge and understanding of other cultures, connect with other academic disciplines, and develop new insights into the nature of language and culture.


The West Hartford standards are based on the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) and the CT State Frameworks for World Languages.  The five goal areas identified in these standards stress the application of learning a language beyond the instructional setting and are referred to as the "five Cs".  The standards address the following five areas:


Communication: Communicate in at least one language other than English
Cultures: Gain knowledge and understanding of cultures
Connections: Make connections with other areas of study and acquire information
Comparisons: Understand the nature of language and cultures through comparisons
Communities: Participate in multilingual communities within a variety of contexts
