With students and families from around the world in Maine 207 schools and with Maine 207 alumni living and working in locations around the world, the personal and career benefits of learning and understanding multiple languages and cultures is apparent. Through this process, students will better understand their own culture and increase their global awareness. A four-year sequence is recommended for optimum success in second language acquisition. Students are able to learn a number of different languages, and if they participate in Advanced Placement courses, they have the opportunity to earn college credit for those experiences.
Five foreign languages are currently offered at Maine South High School: French, German, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish. A four-year sequence as displayed here is recommended for optimum success in second language acquisition.
