Communication, understanding and tolerance are essential to a civilized society. Through its programs, the World Languages Department strives to instill these qualities and to thus prepare the student to be a responsible member of the global community.

Two years of one foreign language are required for graduation from Regina Dominican. Students are offered a choice among French, Latin and Greek and Spanish. Students with previous language experience may take a proficiency test to determine in which class they will be placed. Four years of a language are recommended.
