World Language


 

East Woods provides a well-rounded education for every student. An integral piece of this educational philosophy is the introduction of our students to world languages at an early age. This strong foundation is built upon each year, with consistent and steady increases in the world language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. In addition, students are taught about the culture, history and traditions of the regions in which these languages are spoken natively.

From Nursery through Second Grade, the focus is on Spanish language and culture. Our students are then introduced to French in the Third Grade, when they spend half of the year in a continued study of Spanish, and half of the year studying French. This same method follows them into the Fourth Grade. In the Fifth Grade, the students are asked to focus on either Spanish or French for the duration of their time at East Woods.
