The Falls Church High School World Language Department offers Spanish, French, German, Japanese and Latin.
Our mission is to encourage students to develop multicultural perspectives and to promote tolerance, respect, and authentic communication. Our classes focus on the 5 “C’s” of the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning: Communication; Culture; making Connections; Community; and Comparisons between world languages and cultures. We strive to inspire our students to become life-long learners of languages and well-prepared citizens of an increasingly connected world.
Our vision is to inspire all world language students to travel and continually extend their knowledge of the world; to enjoy learning about different cultures and languages; to develop their language skills to use in their work lives; and to be open-minded international citizens.
The following resources provide additional information about the World Languages curriculum and about the study of second languages.
