The Modern Languages Department at Dumbarton Academy teaches French and Spanish. The department is based in the extension building. Information on the courses offered is to be found under that heading.
French and Spanish are two of the world's most beautiful and elegant languages. Through Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing, these courses will cover the use of the language in personal and social situations, in everyday life and the world of work. The study of French and of Spanish allows learners to appreciate the society and culture of another country, while developing qualities necessary to live and work in a European environment.
