Auburn’s After-School Program Helps Kids Learn Up To Three Different Languages
October 16, 2017The Auburn University Multilingual After-School Program provides language-learning opportunities for students interested in learning Chinese, Spanish, or English. The curriculum is open every semester, and the Fall 2017 semester is currently in session. Classes are currently open for registration. Those interested are welcome to join anytime.
During Chinese class, students learn to speak and write the language. In the above picture, the students learn how to say and write different colors in Chinese, such as 黄 (yellow).
The hands-on curriculum integrates many class activities so the students can interact with the language. The program’s goal is to be totally immersive, and the students can have fun while they learn.
Students learning English as a foreign language sing and play games with Ms. Lydia.
Classes are held on Auburn University’s campus in the Haley Center. The curriculum is intended for entry-level K-9 students, so no prior knowledge of these foreign languages is necessary to join the program.
Students also use workbooks as tools for learning. This not only helps them track their progress, but also gives them practice writing the foreign language.
If you are interested in this program but can’t make the time commitment this semester, the program will open again in the spring. Stay tuned for the Spring 2018 class schedule.
