Modern and Classical Languages

To begin a new language is to step into a new world. To speak a new language and study it is to explore the cultures of those who speak the language. To master a language is to walk among its people and its countries and understand, communicate and appreciate.

Languages encourage those who study them to taste and touch and hear and see and feel.

The Foreign Language Department at McCallie supports the active learning needs of boys through a program that stresses active participation and communication. Boys at McCallie participate in a language by speaking, listening, reading, and writing, using materials that are authentic to the culture of the language. Through a process of language immersion in the classroom, boys learn to communicate effectively in the target language.
