“Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. The United States must educate students who are linguistically and culturally equipped to communicate successfully in a pluralistic American society and abroad. This imperative envisions a future in which All students will develop and maintain proficiency in English and at least one other language, modem or classical. Children who come to school from non-English backgrounds should also have opportunities to develop further proficiency in their first language.” -Statement of Philosophy Standard for Foreign Language Learning.
Academia de Mi Abuela strives to create a community of diverse learners in which Spanish language acquisition is central to their everyday experience.
