Projected enrollment for Arabic, Hindi, and Chinese is 50 students per language, comprising 30 novice 6th and 7th graders and 20 intermediate students. At the end of this academy, we expect rising 6th and 7th grade students to achieve novice low-to-mid level oral proficiency in their language of choice and upper grades students to achieve intermediate low-to-mid level. We anticipate that approximately 90% of our 7th grade students will continue in the language course in the fall at our district. For intermediate students, we expect their scores on the IB exams to reflect the benefits of additional language practice and cultural experience.

During the program, participants will receive performance-based language instruction, participate in hands-on cultural activities, and apply what they have learned in tasks that simulate future communication in an exchange program. Participants will engage in all communication modes, and improve their language proficiency 1 to 2 sublevels higher.
