Modern & Classical Languages
The Modern and Classical Languages Department at Loomis strives to provide an education that teaches you how to interact in an ever-changing global landscape, preparing you for global citizenship. In addition to teaching the fundamental competencies of each language offered, our department will encourage you to dive into the cultural, historical, and geo-political background of whatever language, or languages, you choose to pursue.
Whether teaching Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish, or Latin, our faculty members bring more than just cultural understanding and fluency to the classroom. Our passionate teachers bring language to life, drawing from experiences abroad where they have immersed themselves in learning a second or even a third language.
