THE DEPARTMENT OF WORLD LANGUAGES AND ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE 
                                                   

WORLD LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT MISSION/VISION STATEMENT 
In the Pascack Valley Regional High School District, we prepare students for confident, meaningful interactions with people around the world in the target language. It allows the learners to compare their language and culture to that of others while making connections with other disciplines and current world events within our increasingly interconnected world. 
 
PHILOSOPHY
We believe that our students will benefit in their thinking skills by learning how a different language system operates, how languages influence one another and how different cultures express ideas. The acquisition of a second language is imperative in today's global society. The internationalization of the U. S. economy has made us realize that the knowledge of foreign languages and cultures is essential for success in the international marketplace. Therefore, our foreign language program reflects the needs of the global economy and the multicultural workplace. We focus our language instruction on communicative goals. The students are instructed through a proficiency-based communicative approach. Through hands-on experiences, students use the target language in everyday situations. The emphasis is on learning how to speak and how to understand the language. Four-year world language sequences are offered in Spanish, French, Italian and Chinese.
