Introduction to Wisconsin Standards
for Learning World Languages

Communication: Remember...

Can you answer the following questions?

  1. What are the 3 Communication Modes?
  2. What is the key shift resulting from the use of standards to guide your language program?
  3. What are the four language levels? What do they indicate?

If you are unable to answer the above questions, please return to the Introduction.


Unique to the world language classroom is the focus on communication in another language. This is not talking about the second language or another culture in English; rather, it is using the second language to learn, to communicate, and to enter another culture.

Personal Reflection: Please copy and paste the following questions into your word processor or download the word document containing the questions. Then answer the questions and save it for your professional development portfolio.

Communication Remember-Reflection: Word Document
