Path to Proficiency
As your child begins the journey to language proficiency, many parents would like to know if their child will be fluent in the language by the end of the semester. Learning a language is a journey that starts here at ECHS and one that can be a lifelong experience of deepening the child’s understanding of communication and culture in a second language.
To understand what your child should be able to do in each stage of their learning process, review the infographic that demonstrates how language learning works. My goal is for each student to aim high. Typically, a student that has completed Spanish I falls into the novice, mid-novice high range. A student who has completed Spanish II may fall into the novice-high to intermediate-mid range. Currently, at ECHS we offer up to Spanish II; however, I would love to see our community prioritize language learning and intercultural communication.
