World Languages

Welcome imageMission

We strive to give students a positive language learning experience and to encourage them to use the target language beyond the school setting for personal and professional enrichment.

Using best practices in teaching world languages to students with learning differences, instructors design courses to draw on student strengths and provide the kind of individualized support and strategies that will make language learning a successful experience.

A variety of courses reflecting different processing strengths (oral/auditory, visual, kinesthetic, analytical) offer opportunities for students to develop a strong foundation on which to meet language requirements at four-year colleges.

From a parent on being told her son had written a poem in French and won a department award for excellence: "Words cannot express my gratitude for everything you and the Landmark community have done for my son!  We are blessed to be guided by such thoughtful, amazing educators!!!!"
