Foreign Language

The Foreign Language department at Northbrook High School consists of Latin, French, and Spanish. Following the guidelines of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, our curriculum guides students through the 5 C’s.
Communication: students understand written and spoken language
Cultures: students demonstrate understanding of the practices and perspectives of the culture studied
Connections: students reinforce and further their knowledge of other disciplines through foreign language
Comparisons: students demonstrate a knowledge of language by comparing to their own native language
Communities: students show evidence of becoming life-long learners by using the language for personal enjoyment

Development of these skills begins with level I and continues through level IV AP.
