Homeschooler’s Guide to Teaching High School Foreign Language
Welcome to our all in one homeschool resource for teaching High School Foreign Language. I think all of us can agree that it really pays to be bilingual, however, foreign language study is surely not everyone’s cup of tea. Foreign language often helps students augment their understanding of their own language in addition to the new language that they are learning. However, a fully rounded high school education must include a few credits of a foreign language. Each state has their own guidelines, yet on average the state foreign requirement boils down to two full credits. The student typically has their choice of what foreign language they would like to learn. Most common languages include Spanish, French, German, and even Latin.
Students can Choose the Foreign Language that they Enjoy!
Students are under no obligation to take the language credits at a particular time. However, it is typically best to take at least two consecutive years of a language. If a student desires to be fluent in the language that they are studying they should consider 3-4 years of study in that language or some additional time investment. This might include a summer internship in a country that speaks the language or even an extended mission trip.
