Artisans

Every year artisans gather in Patzcauro, a small village in Michoacan, Mexico, to sell their crafts during Day of the Dead and during Holy Week. The artisans make everything by hand and rely on the tourists to travel to Mexico during these festivals. The artisans have carried on these family traditions for years and many collectors of folk art travel from all over the world to buy these original pieces of art.

íBienvenidos! íWillkommen!

Welcome to the Jordan High School Foreign Language website. Although not considered one of the core subjects, Foreign Language is an important part of a student's academic experience. A year of foreign language meets the fine arts requirement for graduation, and four-year colleges require a minimum of two years of a language other than English.

 

In addition to gaining linguistic skills, foreign language students gain insight into the cultural aspects of the people that speak the target language. They develop insight into the nature of the language and make connections between the language studied and other disciplines. Speaking a second language can create employment opportunities in today's competitive global workforce.

 

Jordan students have the opportunity to study Spanish and this year we are also offering two sections of German. Spanish heritage speakers (those that are already able to converse in Spanish), wishing to increase their proficiency in reading and writing, can elect Spanish for Spanish Speakers. For more information about each of these options, please refer to the links on this page.

Foreign Language

Vision Statement

Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. The United States must educate students who are equipped linguistically and culturally to communicate in our democratic society and abroad. This is the philosophy of our country's national standards on foreign language learning. The standards call for a future in which all students are well-versed in English and at least one other language, modern or classical. The national standards also say that children that come from non-English-speaking backgrounds should further develop their skill in their first language.
