The Greater Essex County District School Board is pleased to offer our International Languages program for the 2021-22 school year. This year, International Languages classes will be offered virtually (online at home). This program is available to students in Grades 1-8 from across Windsor and Essex County.

Your child does not need a background in a particular language to be able to take advantage of this unique opportunity to acquire a second or third language.  International Languages classes will run on Saturdays from 9:30 am - 12:00 pm throughout the year, beginning in October.

Classes are offered based on student enrolment numbers. Any language may be offered for which there are 25 students and an available instructor. Languages potentially offered include:

Arabic       German       Gujarati      Hindi       Italian       Korean       Mandarin       Nepali       Persian        Punjabi     Serbian    Urdu         Tamil          Spanish

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.
