There are many benefits to early study of a World Language. It’s been shown that children who have studied a world language in the elementary grades achieve higher scores on standardized testing. Learning a new language also improves children’s understanding of their native language. In addition, children who study a world language show greater cognitive development than many of their peers.
Here at NAM, our students begin their exposure to Foreign Language in preschool with Spanish class once a week. As students progress, they partake in Spanish multiple times a week. We believe it's important to offer a rigorous curriculum at all levels.
