Definition: Students who are proficient in second languages are able to communicate through listening, speaking, signing, reading, writing, and can apply culturally appropriate practices in real-life situations in a second language. The stages referenced in the Oregon Standards document are adapted from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) proficiency levels. They apply to languages such as American Sign Language, Chinese, Farsi, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish.

Current Standards Adopted: August 2010

Accountability: School districts in Oregon are responsible for determining and implementing performance requirements for second language instruction.
