World Languages

Our World Language Department consists of five Spanish teachers and two French teachers: 

Mrs. Esperanza Gomez, Mr. Frank Gomez, Mr. Alexandre Guimaraes, Mrs. Erica Rojas, Ms. Crystal Stromberg, Ms. Karina Suarez, and Mr. Peter Sunnarborg.


Here at Dominguez High School students are encouraged to take a second language to be diverse.  Standards for the World language learner include: communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities.  By communicating in a language other than English, the students will be able to engage in conversations, provide and obtain information, and exchange opinions on a variety of topics.  By learning about other cultures, students will demonstrate an understanding of the cultural differences that exist in the world.  While learning about other cultures, students will reinforce and further their knowledge while making comparisons of the cultures studied and their own.  


The goal of the World Language Department is to have instilled within the students a sense of pride and confidence in the language and culture learned so that they will use the language for personal enjoyment and enrichment.

If you have any questions or concerns you can contact the department chair, Erica Rojas, (562) 630-0142
