    Why be multilingual?

    Have you ever thought about learning another language beyond your own? There are MANY reasons to learn a new language. Just to name a few, students exposed to additional languages experience: cognitive benefits, academic achievement benefits and an increased sense of global citizenry and cultural awareness. With our diverse student body at Alhambra and its surrounding community, it is even more relevant to know multiple languages.

    About our program

    hands on the world

    Spanish and French classes at Alhambra allow students to engage in activities that activate their oral, written and listening skills. Students also learn about cultural aspects of Spanish and French-speaking countries. Our program offers hands-on, interactive opportunities for students to show their linguistic skills, such as as putting on a fashion show, filming a cooking show or doing job interviews. Our program includes honors and AP courses, some of which are classes for Spanish speakers.
