Classical languages and some American Indian languages will often have a different communication focus than modern languages. The standards and benchmarks, designed to encompass all aspects of language learning, are applied as they fit the recognized purpose of the study of a particular language. Oral proficiency is not the major outcome of studying a classical language nor are reading and writing primary outcomes in learning all American Indian languages.
