World Languages

Our World Language course offerings provide students a great variety of languages and cultures to study, yet a depth of knowledge and experience that prepares them to be engaged global citizens. Students complete reading, listening, writing and speaking activities in the language, receiving feedback from a Michigan-certified and highly qualified instructor. Additionally, students interact with cultural products and practices from the countries in which the specific languages are spoken. MVS World Language courses are aligned with the national standards from the American Council on The Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). We offer experiences in Spanish, French, German, Latin, Japanese, and Chinese, as well as Advanced Placement courses in Spanish and French. Finally, in addition to spoken languages, we offer our highly requested American Sign Language courses.
