World Language Department Mission
Our mission is to prepare students to live and work in a multi-cultural and multi-lingual world of global interdependence. Our World Language Program at Newtown Middle School addresses the following goals:
  • Develop students' linguistic knowledge and skills in a second language and bring these skills to functional use for communicative purposes in listening, speaking, reading, and writing
  • Develop students' appreciation of other cultures as well as their own
  • Develop students' knowledge and skills for the purpose of preparing them to live, work, and communicate in a second language in a multi-lingual world
  • Develop students' higher level thinking skills through activities such as comparing and contrasting, making inferences, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating
  • Develop students' skills by teaching special strategies for listening, speaking, reading, and writing in the target language
  • Increase students' knowledge of English structure and vocabulary through learning the second language
