The mission of the World Language Department at Groves High School is to guide students through the acquisition of a new language and its respective culture. In our classes, our students learn to listen, read, write and speak in the target language, while also gaining relevant cultural insight and experience. Our staff is committed to teaching the 5 Cs of Foreign Language Learning, as outlined by the National Standards in Foreign Language Education and the State of Michigan: Communication, Connections, Communities, Cultures, and Comparisons. We do this by engaging our students in a multitude of activities, where they are asked to interpret spoken and written language, conduct back and forth spoken and written discourse, and present original spoken and written projects. Students are instructed and evaluated according to the Proficiency and Performance Guidelines set by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.
