National Foreign Language Honor Society at MPHS Introduces New Languages to Middle School Students

Sixth grade students at North Country Road Middle School (NCRMS) recently immersed themselves into an international journey to explore foreign language course offerings with members of the Foreign Language National Honor Society (FLNHS) from the high school. As part of the District’s efforts to create a deeper understanding of and appreciation for humanity and culture, at the end of sixth grade students are required to select one of three languages—Spanish, French or Italian—to pursue throughout the seventh grade.

To prepare NCRMS’s young students as they begin their course selections, the FLNHS led in-depth presentations, detailing various aspects of what each language course offers, such as the study of basic vocabulary and the food and other traditions of the culture. Miller Place’s sixth graders gained valuable knowledge about what each language option entails, providing them with a solid foundation to begin their cultural education and confidence as they finalize their schedules for the 2020-2021 academic year.
