  • Welcome to Big Sky World Languages

    “When am I ever going to use this?” is the classic question that nearly all students ask regarding their academic work in high school.  For world language teachers, the answer is simple: “All the time!”  Language is what gives meaning to the world and all that is in it; language is the tool that poets and songwriters use to manifest beauty and art from otherwise ordinary experiences; language is what we use to connect with each other and share in our collective humanity.

    But you already know one language you say?  Why learn a second you ask?  World Language courses at Big Sky are not just about conjugating verbs and learning grammatical rules; rather they serve as the foundation for us to explore all of the beauty and wonder that exists in the world.  All that is worth knowing and experiencing does not reside solely among the English-speaking inhabitants of the world, and learning a second language opens doors for learners that had not been previously opened.  And we replicate that in our classes through authentic experiences with the art, culture, and history of the language of study.  In what other classes do you get to listen to music, watch movies, and make food, all in the name of learning?  

    If you have not already done so, consider taking a world language class at Big Sky High School…you may just find yourself having global experiences for which you previously did not have the words to describe!
