Columbus East High School
World Language Department
Welcome to the Columbus East World Language Department! Currently five levels of French, German, Japanese, and Spanish are offered. Our primary goal is to guide students toward proficiency in speaking, reading and writing of those languages. In addition, our students examine many aspects of culture-music, art, literature, politics, foods, and more. Our teachers are accomplished practitioners who continually seek strategies to improve their own proficiencies, as well as to enhance student learning. We expend much energy refreshing our teaching methods and participating in professional groups. We also expect our students to strive and to achieve to the best of the abilities.
After completing course work in advanced levels, our students often receive college credit by "testing out" of required courses, and go on to excel in advanced college language courses. Many of our graduates now use their foreign language knowledge and experience in their chosen careers.We welcome your questions and communications about Foreign Languages at East High School.
