World Languages Program in Chevy Chase

At Oneness-Family School we believe that learning another language is one of the most powerful ways to expand your world, understand another culture, and become a global citizen. Every student—from preschool through high school—takes part in our immersive World Languages Program, learning Spanish, Italian, or French.

Our school's foreign language program is grounded in the Montessori approach. Students learn vocabulary, grammar and conversational fluency through student-led activities in small groups, learning to speak, write, and understand their chosen language. Our teachers, guides in this process, are all native speakers of the language they teach.
