We provide world language instruction to help students to develop the ability to communicate with native speakers of the language of study.

Other goals include:

  • Developing a greater appreciation of the culture(s) associated with the language of study.
  • Providing interdisciplinary connections to many co-curricular areas such as the arts, mathematics and the social and environmental sciences.
  • Preparing students to actively participate in the global community.
  • Building literacy skills for use in any language.
World Languages is part of the Humanities Department in the division of Learning and Teaching located at Walton Plaza.CMS has been designated A Global Communicators Program District for Excellence in the Study of World Languages by the North Carolina in the World Organization.
