Students enter Ursuline Academy with varied backgrounds and abilities in language skills. Through the various course levels, the department is able to meet each student where she is and provide her the content, skills, and experiences that develop proficiency, fluency, and cultural awareness expected at the college level. In near-immersion classroom, teachers emphasize the three modes of communication -- interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational -- that help instill a love of language while promoting deep appreciation of culture.
