The world language program at LWA offers a unique and challenging language learning experience. Our program is multi-divisional, beginning in pre-k going through grade 12. The courses are designed to integrate content learned in the core subjects. One of the language outcomes is the development of higher level thinking. All courses in middle and upper school are taught in the target language to create an authentic learning environment.
