World Languages

The Harvard-Westlake World Languages Department teaches students to express themselves fluidly and spontaneously in the language of instruction; this is of primary importance.  The expectations are that language students will also develop reading comprehension and an ability to support arguments in writing in the target language at the same level of mastery. At the Upper School, a state-of-the-art language lab can accommodate two language classes simultaneously, while at the Middle School, new technology labs are used by world languages and other courses. The languages currently offered at Harvard-Westlake are: Spanish, French, Latin, and Mandarin Chinese.
