Foreign Language

Foreign Language is not required for graduation, but the Florida Bright Futures requires two (2) in the same language. 

American Sign Language is considered a foreign language by Florida high school and the state university system.

0701320 French I
Students begin to develop competence in four basic skill areas of French: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. While developing communicative competence in French, students gain and expand their knowledge of francophone countries and cultures.
Emphasis is placed on learning the present tense, the near future and the past tense in French I through thematically designed units. Topics include home, school, family, holidays, and daily and leisure activities.
Students develop the ability to:
• greet and respond to greetings
• introduce and respond to introductions
• engage in conversations on several themes
• express likes and dislikes
• make requests
• obtain information
• understand some ideas and familiar details
• begin to provide information.
By the end of French I, students will:
• communicate minimally by using short sentences, learned words and phrases, and simple questions and commands when speaking and writing.
• understand some ideas and familiar details presented in clear, uncomplicated speech when listening.
• understand short texts enhanced by visual clues when reading.


0701330 French II
French II is a high school foreign language course that builds on and reviews skills and concepts taught in French I through further exposure to communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities.
Course materials are designed to support students as they work to gain a basic proficiency in speaking, listening, reading, writing and cultural competency.
Upon completion of the course, students should be able to do the following:
• Use basic French in everyday situations in oral and written communication.
• Use French vocabulary at the level appropriate to living in francophone countries.
• Demonstrate knowledge of France and other francophone countries.
• Listen to and understand passages in French related to various themes.
• Read and understand passages in French related to presented themes.
• Compare and contrast cultural aspects of francophone countries and the United States.
This course gives students practice using the mechanics of the French language, acquaints them with the cultural differences of francophone countries, and helps them gain a keen awareness of their own culture.


0706300 Latin I
There is a reason “all roads lead to Rome.” Maybe it is because Romans built much of the ancient world’s highway system. Maybe it is also because the Roman culture and Latin language laid the foundation for much of Western culture. In this course, students find out for themselves as they take their first steps on a lifelong journey of discovery.
Students improve their command of the English language by studying Latin. Students also gain a better understanding of today’s laws and culture by getting into the Roman mind. Latin I is the most comprehensive way to begin.
The purpose of this course is to give students a foundation in Latin grammar and vocabulary. This course also acquaints students with Olympic gods and with the everyday life of the typical Roman. The course sets the students’ feet on a journey as big as their imagination, with a passport to some of the world’s most exciting places.


0706310 Latin II
History-changing battles, great poets and statesmen, classic art and architecture, and a language that was heard throughout most of the known world. In Latin I, students read the opening credits of this epic movie. In Latin II, the plots and the characters that populated ancient Rome come alive.
In this course, students build on their knowledge of Latin grammar and vocabulary. In the process, they sense the beauty of the language and the passion of those who spoke it. A clear, expressive, and flexible language—a language in which students can communicate—supports Roman engineering, art, commerce, and system of laws.
This course gives students a solid grounding in the structure of the language. It also gives them a clear lens for looking into the heart and majesty of the Roman spirit.


0706320 Latin III
In Latin III, students take their knowledge and appreciation of Latin to the next level. Students read some of the best Latin prose and poetry ever written or spoken. Caesar tells how he conquered the three parts of Gaul. Cicero reminds Romans of the virtues that made their country great. Catullus shows how he could express the deepest human emotions in just a few, well-chosen words.
In Latin III, students visit the library of great authors. The library card gives them access to the timeless words of the greatest Roman poets, storytellers, and orators. Students’ skills with the Latin language give them direct access to the beauty and power of these great authors’ thoughts.
The purpose of this course is to strengthen students’ Latin vocabulary as well as their appreciation for well-crafted writing. Students go directly to the source and recognize why Latin and those who spoke it are still relevant today. Students who complete Latin III earn Honors credit.
