How We Teach A Second Language
Foreign language teachers are required to be native speakers of the language to ensure the highest quality of education and most authentic learning environment for our student.
Our foreign teacher works with every class for 30 to 60 minutes per day depending on age and class needs.
Foreign language is taught using a variety of mediums, including but not limited to musical experiences, social interactions, SMART Board activities and cultural projects.
New content is introduced in English and second language during foreign language class.
