Instruction in a foreign language, either French or Spanish, begins in pre-kindergarten and continues through students' attendance at MKA. Students begin their language study with either the Primary School's full-time French or its full-time Spanish teacher as part of a cohort when they enter pre-kindergarten. Students who begin pre-kindergarten in even years study Spanish; in odd years, French.
Teachers provide language instruction primarily through the use of games, songs, rhymes, mime, role-playing, puppets, and various other techniques. The oral aspect of foreign language acquisition is the primary emphasis. Students learn written skills beginning in the second grade.
