If your school has a foreign language program, is it taught as a stand alone special or is it taught within the classroom with Montessori materials? Our school is considering teaching a foreign language within the classroom. e.g. Montessori materials currently used for language works would be purchased in the foreign language and used throughout the day. This sounds, to me, like a great way to teach the second language. I was wondering if anyone has had this experience.
This w/b a new program for the school. In previous years, our school offered a foreign language as an after school program. The teacher retired two years ago so they did not offer a foreign language last year.
eta...one of the teachers in the classroom is fluent in several foreign languages so she could help the children.
eta...This is an elementary classroom, not preschool.
