World Language

Foreign language study can open the door to opportunity and provide a competitive edge in our global economy. While enhancing marketable skills, it also provides an occasion to expand one’s viewpoint and gain an increased appreciation of other cultures, as well as our own.

In 2019, the Vermont State Board of Education adopted the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language (ACTFL) World Readiness Standards for Learning Language to support Vermont learners as they develop the skills and abilities to communicate effectively and interact with cultural competence as they participate in multilingual communities at home and around the world.
