Mission Statement

The Ridgewood Public Schools World Languages curriculum provides a fun, interactive experience for a student’s first exposure to the Spanish language. The content for each unit is based on an authentic story, myth, or legend from Spanish-speaking culture. This course, designed specifically for younger students, focuses principally on vocabulary acquisition through stories, games, songs, and practice activities. Students are exposed to Spanish language and Spanish-speaking cultures in a fun environment, where they can explore meanings and begin to express themselves through simple words and phrases.
