World Language

  • The World Language Department at Davies prepares students to participate in a multilingual environment that values other cultures, with the goal of developing functional proficiency in world languages. Instruction is offered in Spanish and Portuguese. The World Language program incorporates a proficiency-based curriculum that enables students to use the world language in real life situations.  World Language teachers rely on the power of technology and engaging resources to meet the needs of their diverse learners.

    The World Languages Department of Davies is committed to offer a program with the aim of meeting the needs of students regardless of their ability. It is our conviction that every student can learn a world language. We recognize that the level of proficiency each pupil attains may be different. Therefore, flexibility is built into the program. Every offering has objectives to develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills, although emphasis may be different from course to course.
