In addition to developing communication skills in another language, HALA's Language Department works to inspire joy, cultural literacy, and global awareness in our students. Learners build proficiency in the target languages and become better communicators in English, as well. Teachers create environments and experiences that engage students in the work of language learning. We encourage the ongoing development of proficiency, from the novice through advanced levels. We hope to inspire our students to be lifelong learners of the target languages.
