Language Department

Canterbury students can choose to study one of three languages—Spanish, French, or Latin, progressing as far as the AP level.  Through comprehensible input (CI) and the incorporation of the ACTFL (American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Language) “Can Do” Statements, students engage with the language and fluency/comprehension are encouraged. As members of a global community, students not only learn the language, but also study the culture. The ultimate goal is to create capable, comfortable, comprehensible foreign language speakers, listeners, and writers who carry an understanding of cultures and customs beyond their own.
