Welcome to the SMHS World Languages Department

The World Languages Department at San Marcos High School offers students the opportunity to learn how to speak, read, write and understand Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, American Sign Language and French. Our teachers enrich the language study with cultural activities, which is part of the California State Content Standards.

For the 2017-2018 school year, we offer

  • Spanish - Levels 1- 4AP Language & AP Spanish Literature

  • Spanish for Spanish Speakers - Levels 1 & 2
  • French - Levels 1-4AP Language
  • Mandarin Chinese - Levels 1-3

  • American Sign Language (ASL) - Levels 1-3

SMHS is working to expand its second language offerings.

Many SMHS students elect to study one language for several years, then start their study of a second world language. We encourage language exploration and promote cultural awareness through our study programs.
