Welcome to the North Carolina World Languages Wiki
WLwiki.UpdatedLogo.jpg

World Language study benefits all students. The study of another language leads to higher scores on standardized tests (reading, math, SAT), greater cognitive development in the areas of mental flexibility, creativity, divergent thinking and higher-order thinking skills, a broader English vocabulary, a better understanding of one’s own language and culture, and enhanced career opportunities.


Please download the most recent World Languages in North Carolina document (February 2018) with statewide enrollment information, program highlights, and other data.


Language-specific versions of these materials are compiled upon request.

Here are some recent examples: Chinese (July 2017), French (November 2017), German (June 2018), Spanish (December 2016).


There is also a brief on Language Diversity in North Carolina (March 2018).


This wiki is used to share information, resources, materials and policies to implement the proficiency-based North Carolina World Language Essential Standards.

Please explore the site, download materials, and share any suggestions or questions with Ann Marie Gunter, World Languages Consultant, at ann.gunter@dpi.nc.gov.
