The Foreign Language discipline is designed to satisfy the requirements for:
- Students transferring to a four-year institution, and
- Students planning to acquire a basic practical knowledge of American Sign Language, French, German, Japanese, Korean, or Spanish.
The courses center around the acquisition of a basic vocabulary to express familiar and daily situations, a functional use of grammatical patterns, and a knowledge of cultural aspects of the countries whose language is being taught.
The objective of the curriculum is to develop the four basic skills of language training: Listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing, through audio-visual and audiolingual methods.
Students wanting to transfer to a baccalaureate institution should complete the Associate in Arts Degree. Students should work closely with an advisor at the baccalaureate institution they plan to transfer to before finalizing their education plan.
