Middlebrook World Language Department


“Language is a living, kicking, growing, flitting, evolving reality, and the teacher should spontaneously reflect its vibrant and protean qualities.”

– John A. Rassias


Middlebrook's World Language Department works collaboratively to support Wilton's Portrait of a Graduate. Learning a new language helps students become part of the global community by broadening their horizons and by giving them tools to communicate effectively in this rapidly changing world. The World Language curriculum in Wilton is a roadmap that will lead students to gain a greater understanding of cultural differences. World language study in Wilton will also equip the students linguistically and help them develop proficiency in at least one other language.
