Languages

Spanish Class
The languages department operates under the belief that an essential goal of a liberal arts education is to instill in students a knowledge and appreciation of a language other than the student's native tongue. The curriculum teaches essential skills—reading comprehension, listening comprehension, speaking, writing—as the fundamental components of communication. The examination of history, culture, and traditions are a part of the intellectual process. Learning about customs and context helps the language come alive. In addition, each March students are offered the opportunity to travel abroad and experience learning beyond the Suffield campus.
 
Suffield’s languages curriculum teaches students to:
» Better understand the world through the study of language and culture
» Use acquired language skills to pursue other academic disciplines
» Communicate in the language being studied
» Understand language more completely in the context of bilingualism
