Teaching Minors in French and Spanish

The minors in French or Spanish teaching parallel the coursework requirements set by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) to obtain an endorsement in the teaching of a foreign language.

  • The minor consists of any six French or Spanish courses taken sequentially from the provided list. The level where the student starts the sequence depends on their linguistic proficiency, which is determined by the results of the language placement test.
  • Additionally, students must take WL 440 (Special Methods in the Teaching of Foreign Language).
  • This course offers foundational knowledge in methods of instruction and delivery in the foreign language classroom.
