The World-Readiness Standards for Leaning Languages have five goal areas. These are: Communications, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. The goals are to prepare learners to apply the skills and understandings measured by the standard, to bring a global competence to their future careers and experience.

The K-12 World Languages Curriculum identifies what all students should know and be able to do in French and Spanish. Each grade or course is based upon the Standards For Foreign Language Learning Preparing For the 21st Century

While the Rhode Island World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages guide what students should know and be able to do, the World Languages Curriculum Framework provides guidance to educators around the implementation of the Standards, particularly as they relate to the design and use of curriculum materials, instruction, and assessment.
