Friday, October 8 2021 @ 1:00PM - Friday, December 17 2021 @ 2:30PM EDT| $250.00
Our world is growing ever more connected; students will have an advantage if they are able to nurture those connections through the understanding of foreign languages and cultures. In this course students will take notice of foreign languages found in English. They will also be introduced to the Latin language and Ancient Roman culture along with the Spanish language and Hispanic culture. The instructor recommends following this course with the Winter 2022 session of Foreign Language Exploration in which students will continue their explorations with the French, German, and Japanese languages and cultures.
Ms. Rachel believes this introduction to the study of foreign languages and cultures should be fun! Along with learning greetings and other vocabulary, we will have lots of hands-on craft projects, and students will be encouraged to earn the World Connections Through Cuisine Award (yum!).
