Course Description:
The world languages program in CSD focuses on using languages in real-world situations. Students learn language that prepares them to communicate with others through oral language, print, and media. Although students will need to know vocabulary, grammar, and cultural information, they learn them in order to use them purposefully for communication with others. This emphasis on communication aligns the CSD curriculum with state and national standards.
At each level of world language instruction, students expand the topics on which they are able to communicate, the ways in which they are able to express themselves and understand others, and the sophistication with which they can express ideas. Student understanding of other cultures, ability to behave in culturally acceptable ways, and to recognize the relationships between language and culture grow with each unit, year, and level of world language study.
Each level of the CSD world languages curriculum is guided by clear statements of what students will know and be able to do. Realistic expectations for how well students will be able to use their language and cultural skills are also clearly stated.
These objectives determine what teachers teach, what practice activities are provided to students, and how student progress is evaluated. Ultimately, because the goal of learning language is to be able to use it,  CSD teachers are expected to test and evaluate their students on what students can do with what they have learned. CSD world languages course descriptions include: 1) a series of ‘can do’ statements that indicate what students are expected to demonstrate their ability to do by the end of each academic year of instruction, and 2) a description of how well students can use the language they have learned at the end of the year.
