Languages at the Junior School
Language is directly related to our way of thinking and the way we live: learning a language and a new culture broadens children’s understanding of the world. SMUS students learn French beginning in kindergarten. With regular instruction, students practice the written and oral parts of the languages. Cultural experiences enhance their understanding.

There is a constant flow between reading, writing, speaking and listening. Listening and speaking always precede reading and writing activities to ensure that students develop their pronunciation and sense of meaning.
