Students and faculty gathered in the Kravis Center on Thursday evening for a Dialogue in the Common Good to shed light on some common misconceptions about Puerto Rico.
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.
The Alvord Center announces this year's International Educational Programs for Loomis students in Spain, Puerto Rico, the Galapagos Islands, Vietnam and Cambodia, Hungary, and the canyons of southeastern Utah.
Modern & Classical Languages faculty presented their summer professional development activities and modeled a creative teaching technique.
Learning a language at Loomis Chaffee is learning how to communicate with others in a meaningful way, how to build bridges to other nations through a better understanding of people, and how to better understand oneself through the study of something other than one’s own native language and culture.
