Welcome to World Languages & ENL Homepage
for Roslyn High School and Roslyn Middle School
Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos! Bienvenues! Benvenuti! 歡迎
Our department is dedicated to the creation of global citizens. In an ever-changing world, multilingualism opens doors and creates endless opportunities for success. The ability to communicate in more than one language changes not only our perspective of the language we speak, but of the world itself.
In the words of Nelson Mandela, "If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart."
The World Languages Department celebrates and values diversity. We immerse our students in their language of choice and strive to create a deep appreciation of other cultures. We are passionate about what we teach and we are excited to take your students on a cultural journey that is sure to last a lifetime.
Congratulations to our seniors who received the NYSSBL in 2018

Ink Brush Painting Worskshops
In honor of Lunar New Year, the World Languages Department in conjunction with the New York Chinese Cultural Center hosted Ink Brush Painting Workshops for our Mandarin students in both the middle school and the high school. Using an ink brush, a calligraphy artist taught our students about the relationship between ancient Chinese pictographs and their modern day ideographs. Students learned how to write with the brush and to create their own paintings and Chinese symbols on rice paper. Guided by their teacher Ms. Yeh (Mrs. A) our students enthusiastically accepted the challenge of mastering this skill and are looking forward to learning more.
