Foreign Language at Benedictine empowers students to effectively engage in and contribute to our globalized society. Students develop and appreciate an understanding for other cultures and traditions while building an understanding of grammar and vocabulary in the target language.
What does Benedictine offer?
Benedictine offers five levels of Spanish and five levels of Latin , including an Advanced Placement Latin course. The Spanish curriculum stresses oral and written communication.
Courses in Latin acquaint students with Roman history, literature and laws as they help build vocabulary and translation skills. French classes afford students the opportunity to learn one of the world's most beautiful languages. Students implement this knowledge to gain an unparalleled understanding of history, literature, and culture in the United States and the world over.
Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. Foreign language learning correlates with higher academic achievement in all areas, but with particular respect to reading, scientific hypothesis, cognitive abilities, and problem solving.
An emphasis on Foreign Language is just one of the many ways in which we at Benedictine form men of conscience, discipline, and achievement.
