Language of the Month

Why have a Language of the Month?

 

There are many reasons why we should know about one another‛s languages, including the following:

∙ To give bilingual children the opportunity to demonstrate the language skills they bring to school.

∙ To enhance the status of bilingual children.

∙ To broaden the horizons of monolingual English-speakers.

∙ To show respect for other languages and cultures.

∙ To give parents an opportunity to be actively involved in their children‛s learning.

 

This month the language is Portuguese.

 

This is the official language in Portugal. Please take the time to practice the Portuguese vocabulary provided.
