Welcome to the Foreign Language Department web page at Lane School!
While at the Lane School students are offered a three-year study of French or Spanish. Our language classes are interactive and engaging and folllow a Foreign Language in the Elementary Schools (FLES) model. In our classes students will develop proficiency in listening and speaking a new language and will work towards building some proficiency in reading and writing as they advance through the program.
We invite you to learn more about our unique programs by clicking links to the left.
"...the best peace work in the world is learning someone else's language because in doing so, you begin to understand a whole different way of putting the world together and naming it. Not only that, you're able to communicate with those 'foreign' others and realize that though languages differ, the human heart speaks the same native tongue everywhere. When you learn someone else's language, you knit the human family closer together."
