Biliteracy is an essential asset for a lifetime of success

KEY PILLARS

We’ve identified three key pillars for helping language learners build and maintain proficiency. Together these ensure the rich learning experiences necessary for second language growth.

Build proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing through dynamic engagement with language.

Support the productive struggle that ensures academic and linguistic growth.

Connect to culture through rich, relevant resources that are central to the first and second language.
