Upper School Academic Departments

Modern and Classical Languages

The mission of the Department of Modern and Classical Languages is to encourage students to see themselves as citizens of the world and to embrace a global view. In Modern Language classes, we focus on using the language in authentic and meaningful situations, incorporating and practicing the fundamental skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The courses progress in difficulty, with topical contexts, from the expression of basic needs and desires to the discussion of complex topics in the upper levels. Our pedagogy is guided by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) recommendations for creating an immersive language learning experience. In the Latin courses, we emphasize reading, translation, grammar, vocabulary, and derivatives. Students of Latin learn to read ancient authors while studying Roman history and Classical mythology.

  • Chinese I Honors

    Full Year
    1 credit
    Chinese does not use an alphabet, and as such is fundamentally different from European languages. For this reason, Chinese may seem mysterious and impenetrable to non-native learners. In this course, students are introduced to Chinese as a language that—quite to the contrary— is fascinating and accessible to all! The course begins with the romanization system, known as pinyin, which uses the familiar American alphabet to decode Chinese sounds, then moves on to demystify the written characters, revealing the component parts, known as radicals, that provide meaning and form. From there, students learn to structure simple sentences. Because Chinese does not write in letters, it lacks conjugations and other challenging grammar tasks. This course draws from a variety of online resources and educational platforms to train listening comprehension and practice speaking. Along the way, students learn about Chinese culture, including who Confucius was, and how Chinese New Year is celebrated.
  • Chinese II Honors

    activities. An enormous amount of vocabulary is taught so that students are well-equipped to engage in the sorts of conversations they may have with peers in English. To further this end, conversations are established with other students who are usually from partner institutions and with whom they get to know exclusively through Chinese conversation. All of our units include a direct comparison to China so that students learn to compare their routines with students from another country, including preparing for the much vaunted GaoKao examinations. This course draws from a variety of online resources, educational platforms and authentic materials.
