Teaching Minors in French, German and Spanish

The minors in French, German 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, German 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.
