World Language Information for the Class of 2024

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

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

Three years of study in the same world language are needed to meet the world language requirement at TJHSST.  Two years of two different languages does not meet the world language requirement for TJHSST. 

Which world languages can I take as an incoming 9th grader?

Ninth graders who wish to begin a new world language in Level 1 may choose from a rich selection of five languages: 

Chinese, German, Japanese, Latin, and Russian

Spanish 1 and French 1 are not offered at TJHSST as all our participating school districts offer Spanish 1 and French 1 in middle school.  

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

Do I need to take a Readiness Assessment? 

As schools are closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, a Readiness Assessment will not be administered.

I have two language credits from Middle School. Can I sign up for Level 3?

We have ninth graders who come from many different programs – both public as well as private schools. Even if you have done well in Level 2, it is strongly advised that you begin your language studies at TJHSST in the Level 2 class.  Please contact the language teachers individually to discuss which class would best match your skills if you are unsure about your level.
