World Languages

A World of Opportunity

There are endless benefits to learning a second language and culture. Students who study a second language increase their global awareness and understanding, improve literacy in their native language, are better prepared for college, have more employment opportunities and have a greater appreciation for the arts.

Austin ISD offers World Language courses on campuses from elementary through high school. Roughly 150 world language teachers deliver curriculum and instruction to support 11 different languages: American Sign Language, Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Spanish and Vietnamese.
