Introduction to Wisconsin Standards
for Learning World Languages

Communication: Learn...

Communication does not occur in a vacuum, nor is it merely a process of translation.

Wisconsin's Model Academic Standards for Foreign Languages define the three communication modes in terms of what students will do. These modes are described as follows:

Communication: A-Interpersonal
Students in Wisconsin will engage in conversations, provide and obtain information, express feelings and emotions, and exchange opinions in a language other than their own.

Communication: B-Interpretive
Students in Wisconsin will understand and interpret a language other than their own in its written and spoken form on a variety of topics.

Communication: C-Presentational
Students in Wisconsin will present information, concepts, and ideas to an audience of listeners or readers on a variety of topics in a language other than their own.

Please read rationale, explanations, and assessment of communication information in your Planning Curriculum for Learning World Languages guide, pp. 7-9.
