World Languages at Avon Old Farms School

We offer 23 World Language courses and host international festivals to celebrate our vast diversity, further aiding students to understand that selflessness is a key attribute in developing a strong moral compass.

Our modern language classes focus on building a solid foundation of correct pronunciation and the development of aural comprehension so that the advanced classes may be conducted entirely in French, Mandarin, or Spanish. Once that foundation is constructed in lower-level courses, every opportunity is used to introduce the cultural wealth of the civilizations of the French-, Mandarin-, and Spanish-speaking people of the world through studying geography, customs, and history.

The goal of the Latin program is to expose English-speaking students to the origins of their own language, and, through reading selections, to the culture and history of the classical world.
