The Department Chair is Mr. Goettsche.
Welcome to the World Languages Department! We look forward to having your student in one of the many languages that we offer here at EHS.  We offer French,  Japanese, German, and Spanish and courses range from level one to levels 4 AP, and 5 AP.  We also offer level 2 and 3 Honors courses in French, Japanese, German, and Spanish.  
Students are encouraged to take a language and continue into the higher levels (3 and up) in preparation for the AP test in Level 4 AP tests in the respective languages. 
Fluency is a goal for all languages and therefore, classes will be conducted mostly in the target language beginning with level 1.  English language support is given at levels 1 and 2 and the target language is used exclusively in levels 3, 4 AP.   It is expected that honors students speak in the target language for most of Level 2 Honors and exclusively in level 3.  Class participation in the target language is a required component of the students grade and experience.  
For more information on individual classes, please choose from one of the following links on the side of this page to visit each teacher's web page.  Please be patient as some of the pages are currently under construction.
We are looking forward to sharing world languages with you!
