​International Languages

- for students Grades 1-8 -

The Greater Essex County District School Board is pleased, once again, to offer our International Languages program for the 2020-21 school year.

This year, due to the obvious circumstances, these classes will be offered on-line, at home for students in Grades 1-8.

Students do not require a background in a particular language to learn it.

Classes will run on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. beginning in November. Which languages will be offered based on enrolment – a class will be offered for which there are 25 students and an available instructor.

International Languages classes will be presented through Microsoft Teams and will require students to be able to access this online tool at home through an electronic device (computer, laptop, tablet) and access to the internet. As this is a complimentary program, technology will not be provided to families who are participating.

We have previously offered: Albanian, Arabic, Persian, Punjabi, German, Hindi, Urdu, Italian, Tamil, Korean, Spanish, Mandarin, Serbian and Nepali.
