World Languages


An active, dynamic and communicative approach is the focus of all World Language courses at RMHS.  The department offers a program designed to develop the 4 essential skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.  Students will have the opportunity to apply these skills in real-life scenarios. In addition, students will come to understand and appreciate the value of different cultures where the target language is spoken.  Currently, our department offers French, German, and Spanish. These languages are valuable for travel, diplomatic professions, business, and complete education. Language study can enhance SAT and ACT scores. Outside the classroom, students have the opportunity to participate in language clubs, regional competitions, and to travel/study abroad if approved by Poudre School District.
