BCTHS – Teterboro World Language Department


Today’s students are part of a dynamic, interconnected, and technologically-driven global society centered on the creation and communication of knowledge and ideas across geographical, cultural, and linguistic borders. Individuals who effectively communicate in more than one language, with an appropriate understanding of cultural contexts, are globally literate. This global literacy brings about long-term worth in fostering personal, work-related, and/or financial success in our increasingly interconnected world.

At BCTHS-Teterboro, students develop proficiencies in listening, speaking, reading, and writing throughout their coursework, enabling them to communicate in more than one language with the level of proficiency required to function in a variety of occupations and careers in the contemporary workplace. Knowledge of several languages empowers individuals by opening economic and social opportunities, and promotes tolerance and diversity as well as solidarity within our global community. Language learning allows us to bridge cultural barriers and promote ways of interpreting our diverse world while stimulating intellectual curiosity. French, Mandarin, and Spanish are currently offered.
