World Language

Lane Tech offers the following World Languages: Arabic, Chinese, French, German,  Italian, Japanese, and Spanish.  Students should take the language placement exam if they speak the language they will be taking as a freshman OR if they took the selected language at their elementary school. The language exam will allow students to test out of the level one language and into a higher level.

Students who speak conversational Spanish at home and will be taking Spanish as a freshman should take the Spanish placement exam. Lane offers a Spanish for Native Speakers course that many of our students place into.  Students who indicate on the Home Language Survey that they or someone that they live with speaks Spanish at home will automatically be placed in Spanish for Native Speakers.
