World Languages

This 6th grade language course is designed to introduce young students to the myriad foreign languages offered at York, in four half-semester long classes. As a preview of what they will encounter in future language courses, 6th graders will be exposed to the basics of the French and Spanish languages and cultures through simple phrases and vocabulary words concerned with greetings, the alphabet, numbers, and classroom activities. After a year spent sampling these four languages students will be equipped to choose their preference for the following years of school.
