FLINT TWP. — The Carman- Ainsworth Middle School World Language Department is hosting two World Language Nights to celebrate learning languages and the diverse cultures around the world.
The first event took place on January 8 and the second will be held on February 12 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in Room 811. The event targets students interested in learning a foreign language and also earning high school credit in the 8th grade.
In addition to discussing the benefits of learning languages, presenters will also talk about the new graduation requirements for World Languages and the options open to Carman-Ainsworth students.
Currently, students can take French or Spanish in 8th grade for one of the two World Language credits that they will need to graduate from high school. They can then take their second credit during high school or continue their language study throughout all four years and receive college credit by the end of their high school career.
At World Language Night, families will also be able to talk with a panel of current 8th grade students in Spanish and French classes, view textbooks and other instructional materials, and browse displays of cultural items from various Spanish and French-speaking countries.
Plans also are in the works to establish a World Cultures Club at CAMS and other activities to celebrate learning language and other cultures.
Anyone with questions about the new World Language graduation requirements, programs or classes at CAMS, should contact Tiffany Robinson at (810) 591-6260 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Deborah Duke at (810) 591-6261 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
