Guides to the Colorado Academic Standards in World Languages

Colorado Academic Standards World Languages Graphic

In the 21st century the ability to communicate in more than one language is an essential skill for all Colorado learners. Learning multiple world languages, developing multiple perspectives and understanding other cultures are vital skills needed to both collaborate and compete in our global community. Learners acquire knowledge, skills, and attitudes that equip them for living and working in a world of diverse peoples, languages and cultures. 

In partnership with the Colorado PTA, family and community guides to the Colorado Academic Standards (in English and Spanish) have been created to help families and communities across Colorado better understand the goals and outcomes of the Colorado Academic Standards. The guides describe the “big picture” purpose of the standards, as road maps to help ensure that all Colorado students graduate ready for life, college, and careers. They also provide overviews of the learning expectations for each of the ten content areas of the standards and offer examples of educational experiences that students may engage in, and that families could support, during the school year.

View guides for all of Colorado's core content areas.


A Special Thank You to...

The Standards and Instructional Support team would like to thank Toni Theisen for her invaluable contributions to the family/community guides for the World Languages Standards.  Her expertise and content knowledge was instrumental in creating the guides and helping CDE better support all Coloradans engaged in the successful implementation of the Colorado Academic Standards.
