The languages offered through the World Languages (Language B) department of Ronald Reagan High School are French, Spanish and Spanish for Heritage Speakers.



    The World Languages program is designed to afford students the opportunity to communicate using the target language.  Students will also be exposed to various aspects of the culture including music, film, architecture, literature, and politics.  Students will also learn how the culture has influenced and been influenced by the world.  Immersing themselves into the target language will allow students the opportunity to read, write, speak, understand and become knowledgeable of the language.  Conversing in the language will allow students to become risk takers as they become open minded and identify various aspects of the culture as compared to their own.
