The comprehensive approach to language learning at Penobscot School includes work in language proficiency, the ability to communicate effectively, and an overview of cultural aspects associated with the student’s language of choice. The school is committed to offering a variety of methods to fully engage learners of all ages and at all levels. This includes the opportunity to study language and culture through culinary activity in the school’s newly renovated, state-of-the art kitchen.

Reasons for language learning vary. Some wish to travel. Others enjoy the health benefits associated with learning a language other than one’s native tongue. Some want to revive rusty language skills. Still others enjoy the rich experience of reading the literature of other cultures. Whatever your reason, please join us!
