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. Students in all three languages can move through the sequence to advance to the highest level, the College Board-approved Advanced Placement course.
