Philosophy of the Westport SPANISH Program

Westport has long been a strong advocate of providing students the opportunity to learn a second language. The acquisition of skills and cultural understanding are significantly improved through long, uninterrupted sequences of the study of a second language. A language learner’s proficiency is measured by the progression of the learner’s ability to perform in the areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing and in the demonstration of cultural understanding.

Language teaching has undergone a shift over time from a mental discipline of rote learning and translation to the use of language to better understand our world neighbors and transact business in an ever growing global marketplace. The sixth grade Spanish program is founded on the belief that the study of a second language is most beneficial when initiated in elementary school and continued through high school. The study of a second language improves overall academic performance and encourages superior problem-solving skills.
