World Language Information for the Class of 2023

Welcome to the World Language Program at TJHSST! Beginning a new world language or continuing your journey with one - TJHSST World Language has a place for you!

World Language Requirement at TJHSST

Three years of study in the same world language are needed to meet the world language requirement at TJHSST.  

Our primary goal is to make your freshman year of world language learning at TJHSST as enjoyable and as enriching as possible.

Which world languages are offered at TJHSST?

TJHSST offers  seven world language programs: Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin, Spanish and Russian.

Class of 2023 students who wish to begin a new world language in Level 1 may choose from a rich selection: Chinese, German, Japanese, Latin, and Russian.

Do I need to take a Readiness Assessment? 

  • If you have one or two credits in the same world language, and do not want to start a new world language, you may sign up for Level 2 without the need to take a Readiness Assessment. 

  • If you have two credits in the same world language, and would like to advance to Level 3, you must take the Readiness Assessment. If you are not available to take the Readiness Assessment for Level 3, you will automatically be placed in Level 2. 

  • If you have individual world language placement concerns, please contact us
