Listening, and Language. These four strands are represented in the World-Readiness Standards for
Learning Languages by the Communication standards (Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational) and the level of
proficiency demonstrated. In addition, the standards of the other four goals areas for learning languages – Cultures,
Connections, Comparisons, and Communities – also support and are aligned with the Common Core.
