World Languages Courses

World Languages

Students planning to go to college should take at least two years of a world language. Taking a language for all four years in high school will improve a student’s chances of getting in to a competitive university or for getting a scholarship. Although the Timpview World Language Department offers only three classes in each language, it is still the intent of this course sequence that students take a language all four years of high school. Students progress through the course sequence according to proficiency level and not according to seat time. Students will either enroll twice in the Pre-AP/Honors class or twice in the AP/Pre-AP class. Students progress from class to class when they are ready based on proficiency. Students take the AP Test when they have reached Intermediate Mid or above. Students can enroll in the AP class even after taking and passing the AP test to continue their language progress.
