Second Language

How can I communicate in a different language?

Our Approach

Learn a foreign language through Rosetta Stone through the Second Language elective course.

Learn a foreign language through Rosetta Stone through the Second Language elective course.

Learning a second language is invaluable. Opening our minds to another culture, another way of looking at the world, and another people gives us perspective on life in this world and a desire to learn even more. People who speak a second (or even a third) language prepare themselves to travel the world, enjoy learning about new cultures, music, and foods, and increase their brain power. Come jump into the world of languages with us.

Williamsburg Academy offer a variety of second languages through Rosetta Stone. If you’re curious about how the Rosetta Stone program works, click here for a free demo.

Students should register for the 1A course if they are new to a language, or for a higher course if they have already taken a previous course or have an equivalent amount of experience with the language.

Available Languages

There are either 3 or 5 levels of study available in each language, as noted below. Each level takes approximately 20-70 hours to complete depending on an individual student’s aptitude for languages, the difficulty of the language selected, etc. Each level is worth 0.5 credits. For 3-level languages, a student can earn up to 1.5 credits total in Rosetta Stone. For 5-level languages, a student can earn up to 2.5 credits total. Please note that many colleges require two credits of a second language, and Williamsburg can only offer 1.5 credits of the languages for which only three levels are available, as explained below. If you plan to seek admission to a college that requires two years of a second language, you should select a language with 5 levels available, or study more than one language.
