The World Language Program at Irving School is an introduction to different languages and cultures. In these classes, students will learn basic communication vocabulary. The relaxed class environment will help students overcome their apprehension to speak a foreign language. Language skills will grow over the years of instruction.
For 2014-2015, the World Language Program offers 8 languages: Swahili, Polish, Greek, French, German, Italian, Mandarin and Spanish. Some classes will run for 1 hour every week while other will be 1/2 hour, twice a week (look at the form). Students will eat their lunch during their language class (All classrooms are NUT FREE).
Due to the new lunchtime schedule, we are not able to offer every language to every grade. If you cannot register your child in the language you want, please write a comment at the end of this form.
The World Language Program is completely independent, funded solely by tuition paid by families of participating children. World Languages are sponsored by the PTO, endorsed by the School Board, and encouraged by the staff and principal of Irving School.
Extracurricular World Language Program Registration Form is due December 12th, 2014. Please SEND your check(s) payable to IRVING P.T.O. to complete your registration HERE.
