World Languages

Spanish   German    Ojibwe


Why should you take a World Language?


Ø      Two years of a consecutive world language are required at many universities, and several state (UW-Madison and Eau Claire) and private universities are strongly recommending three-four consecutive years of a language.  

Ø      Three or four years of a world language in high school can earn you retro active credits in college – which means you do not pay for the college credits!

Ø      World languages help you improve your English skills and do better on ACT and SAT tests.

Ø      World languages are FUN to learn.

Ø      World languages help you be more marketable in the work force.

Ø      Taking a world language helps you speak, read and write in another language and learn the culture of other countries.

Ø      German Club, Latin Club and Spanish Club all take trips to the country studied every other year and Ojibwe is an intricate part of our Northern Wisconsin culture.

Ø      The teachers of world languages at LUHS are AWESOME!
