At Buzz Aldrin Middle School, it is recommended that students enrolled in a language complete all three years in that language in order to reach a higher level of proficiency and language mastery. The World Language program at BAMS provides many opportunities and resources for our students to gain that mastery and proficiency in Spanish and French,as defined by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).

The goal of the WL Department is to provide all students with the listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills that will allow them to communicate in languages other than English, to appreciate and understand other cultures, and to be contributing members of the global community. Classes are conducted primarily in the target language; our ultimate goal is to have minimal English spoken in the classroom. At all levels of study students examine the geography and culture characteristic of the target cultures. Technology is integrated into all levels of instruction, and students are encouraged to use 21st Century resources to express themselves in the target language at their level of proficiency.
