Modern Language

The Modern Language Department at Carondelet prepares students to communicate authentically in French, Spanish, and American Sign Language. In their Modern Language class, students are immersed in a variety of communicative and culturally responsive activities designed to develop their listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills. Italian and Latin are also available at De La Salle High School. 

Beyond the two years of language required for graduation, students are encouraged to continue their study for the third year (levels 3 and 3 honors) and the fourth year (level 4 and Advanced Placement - not available for ASL) and obtain the Seal of Biliteracy.

Outside the classroom, language students can participate in clubs such as the ASL club, the Spanish Honor Society, and the French Honor Society and engage in service projects such as Cartas con Amor (Letters with Heart).

Most years, trips abroad offer students the opportunity to use their language skills in France and Spain, and immerse themselves in the cultures with peers and locals. We are currently planning our next trip abroad for the spring of 2021!

This year, our department is also thrilled to begin a new virtual cultural exchange with students in Sénégal through the World Wise School initiative, a global connections program of the Peace Corps.

Graduation Requirements: 20 Credits

Grade Offerings: Modern Language Courses move from Level 1 to AP classes. Most 9th grade students will take a level 1 course offering from French, Spanish, American Sign Language, Italian, or Latin. Students may be placed in level 2 or level 3 courses based upon teacher recommendations and a placement test. French and Spanish are offered on the Carondelet campus, Italian and Latin are offered on the De La Salle campus. Typically, 9th and 10th graders do not take courses on the De La Salle campus. Please plan your choices accordingly.
