global Language

Our global language courses enable students to communicate in the language while learning about other cultures. Students are prepared with the goal of earning a high school credit at the end of 8th grade, and Mason Prep students perform very well on the National French and Spanish Exams. 

Mason Prep offers Spanish and French. In grades K-2, students take a semester of Spanish and a semester of French. At the end of 2nd grade, students choose to continue with either French or Spanish.

Our global language program centers around the National Standards for Foreign Language Education.

Communication: Communicate in languages other than English

Cultures: Gain knowledge and understanding of other cultures

Connections: Connect with other disciplines and acquire information

Comparisons: Develop insight into the nature of language and culture

Communities: Participate in multilingual communities at home and around the world

Above: Mason Prep hosted its own "World Cup," where students were divided into teams representing French and Spanish speaking countries. Prior to the event, students learned about their countries and practiced their French and Spanish by speaking about sports. During the event, students cheered on their teammates in the appropriate language. A memorable way to foster a love of language!
