World Language
All DPS 8th graders should follow placement recommendations from their current world language teachers. Here are the general guidelines- If you have taken 0-1 year of a world language in middle school- sign up to take level 1. If you have taken 2 years in middle school- level 2. 3 years- level 3, etc. Beyond that, students with extensive language education/experiences beyond 3 years of middle school, should describe them in the next question. A world language department member will follow up with you with further guidance regarding advanced level recommendations. **If Spanish is spoken at your home and you understand Spanish and can already speak some Spanish, please sign up for Spanish Language Arts 1 (Spanish for Native Speakers).
Clear selection
If you believe your student is eligible to take level 4 or above in world language, please include your student's language education/ experiences and their current middle school, and we will connect you with a member of our world language team for further guidance.
