World Languages

Communication is central to the human experience. Language influences how we perceive our world and others. To learn to communicate in other languages creates the possibility of seeing the world and ourselves from a different perspective: an invaluable gift in this globally connected world.

At CFBISD we celebrate our own linguistic and cultural diversity and believe that to truly engage in this global economy our students must be equipped to communicate competently and confidently in more than one world language.

Our mission? To create competent and confident communicators in the languages we offer.

We are guided by the ACTFL proficiency guidelines standards and performance indicators that inform the Texas TEKS for LOTE .

We are also inspired by the AP language themes and program.

The AP themes:

  • Global Challenges
  • Science & Technology
  • Contemporary Life
  • Personal & Public Identities
  • Families & Communities
  • Beauty & Aesthetics
