French and Japanese

The study of Languages gives students the opportunity to learn to speak, understand, read and write basic colloquial French or Japanese, and to learn about and conduct some research on Japanese or French culture. Completing a language course at secondary school establishes a good basis for further development of understanding and expression in the language, and knowledge of and ability to operate in the culture of the speakers of the language.
Learning another language is a challenge, a lifelong task, but is one of the most interesting things a person can do. Language classes at MGSC are interesting, challenging, and help a girl develop her potential.
