EPS students are exposed to Spanish starting in Pre-K and with the addition of Mandarin in kindergarten, students continue to learn both Mandarin and Spanish through 5th grade. In 6th grade, students choose to intensively study either Mandarin or Spanish through 8th grade. Students completing our 8th grade Spanish course will receive high school credit for Spanish 1. Our unique foreign language programs are designed to promote high achievement while developing students’ speaking, listening, writing and reading skills in the target language.
Our challenging and fun Mandarin and Spanish language curricula offer lessons that encourage interactive learning through role-play, skits, music and video. Age appropriate games and activities along with diverse range of cultural events are designed to take EPS students beyond the classroom into the real world to promote the value and appreciation of different languages and cultures.
