Give your child the opportunity to learn a world language! The Language Link classes are forming at John Hay for the Fall Session, so register now to secure a space!

World language learning is critical for your child. Children who have studied a second language in a sequential, well-organized program exhibit cognitive advantages:

o They do significantly better at tasks requiring divergent thinking, problemsolving, and figural creativity (Landry, 1974);

o They score higher on standardized tests in language arts, reading, and math than students not enrolled in foreign language programs (Rafferty, 1986; Garfinkel and Tabor, 1991);

o They have improved self-concept, sense of achievement (Masciantonio, 1977).

Art, music, games and fun
Students learn academic and social language skills through games, music, art, drama and spontaneous conversation. The focus is on development of oral proficiency.

Small Classes sizes
Class size is capped at 12 students, and requires a minimum of 8, students per class – you will be notified by email of schedule changes due to class sizes. If you do not have internet access, please call Barbara Ford at 708-4633.

The Fall Session begins October 5, 2010. Classes meet before and after school in coordination with the regular school day schedule. Please see web site for specific class schedules along with tuition and payment procedures.
