High School World Languages
Description of the Lake Braddock High School WORLD LANGUAGES program:
The World Languages Program of Studies focuses on students' ability to function in the language in a variety of contexts meaningful to them. Primary emphasis is placed on developing students' proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing as well as cultural understanding. In Latin classes, the speaking and listening skills are emphasized to a lesser extent. Both National Standards and the Fairfax Framework for Student Success support the philosophy that all students should have the opportunity to learn a second language.
