The Language Department encourages each student to develop a mastery of a new language and to explore a new culture. Students are encouraged to connect their study of language to other areas of interest. These connections cultivate fresh perspectives, a sense of purpose in mastering a new language, and awareness of the many links languages make within the MHS community and beyond.
Students are guided through a detailed examination of the history, geography, literature, customs, traditions, and arts relative to the language they study.
Students become proficient as they develop intellectual stamina, discipline, and imagination. They gain fluency in all areas of study, become confident in their ability to express themselves and recognize their talent in communication.
