From Local to Global is a three-week summer language program designed to introduce 45 high school students to Arabic, Portuguese, and Russian language. They will be divided into three language groups. The program will have two sections for Arabic, two sections for Portuguese and one section for Russian. The proficiency level for Arabic and Russian is novice-low/mid. For Portuguese, the proficiency level is novice-high/ intermediate low . We noticed that students in this region learn Portuguese easily and quickly since the majority of students speak Spanish in this region and there are a lot of similarities between Spanish and Portuguese. The program offers six hours daily for fifteen days providing a total of ninety instructional hours. Summer language acquisition will be maintained and expanded during the subsequent school year, through the online portion of the program.
