The mission of the Foreign Language Department at the Lawrenceville School is to support students as they become citizens of the global community.
Our curriculum is designed to develop the capacity to understand other cultures and people through the beauty and power of their languages. It is the capacity for language, for complex symbolic communication that is, arguably, what makes us human. Thus, to learn a foreign language is not only useful, allowing us to accomplish tasks, to coordinate work and play, but it is also deeply personal, giving us the means to share our hidden interior lives with other human beings.
 
Finally, to learn a foreign language means to see and understand the world in a new way, to adopt, even temporarily, a new perspective. It is only when we encounter and interact with another culture that we can truly understand our own. For many students, learning a foreign language is the first time that they realize what makes their language, their culture, and even themselves, unique.

  • LA566 - Honors French: The Ninth Art

    The American term "comic strip" does not hint at the literary and artistic development of what in France is called the "neuvième art". The French term "bande dessinée" means literally "drawn strip" and for over one hundred years this genre, combining text and image, has developed into a rich and varied art form. This course will study this narrative art form beginning with a brief historical orientation followed by a close reading of three of the most well-known BD: both Tintin and Astérix have been translated into hundreds of languages and are read around the world, whereas the third BD, Manon des sources, is more literary. Grants: Honors; Terms: T1; Forms: All Prereqs: LA404, LA492 or LA509
  • LA568 - Honors French: Lettres Scandaleuses

    After the classical constraints on art and culture of the preceding century, 18th century epistolary literature, both authentic and fictional, fed a societal fascination with private life behind the public façade. After a brief introductory survey of various examples of published letters, including excerpts from authors such Mme. de Sévigné, Françoise de Graffigny, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, we will make our way though Laclos' somewhat licentious Les Liaisons Dangereuses, focusing on selected letters. The final stage of the course will be to view and compare two famous and rather different film adaptations by Roger Vadim (1959) and Stephen Frears (1988). We will consider themes such as the education of women, the notion of public and private life, and the implications of a narrative structure that lacks a narrator. In addition to short, written reflections, the final assignment will be a creative writing project. Grants: Honors NCAA; Terms: T2; Forms: All Prereqs: LA562, LA566 or IN526

(No prior acting experience needed!) Grants: Honors; Terms: T3; Forms: All Prereqs: LA495 or LA511
  • LA595 - Honors Spanish: Fiction And Reality

    The discovery of the Americas started a culture shock that still echoes today. It was then that the "painful birth that is now the nation of Mexico" took place. Two worlds saw each other for the first time, as Carlos Fuentes says, in a distorted mirror. In this seminar the students will study the blurry line that separates fiction/fantasy from reality by reading stories from the "Boom group" like GarcÌa Marquez, Julio Cortazar and more modern literature like Ruiz ZafÛn and films like "Como Agua para Chocolate" and "El Laberinto del Fauno". The final goal of the class is to write a 1,800 words short story that will mirror the ideas, images and themes studied in the class.
