The American Council for Foreign Language Teaching (ACTFL) has reported that early language learning improves children's cognitive abilities in many areas, including memory, intelligence, and problem solving. The Connections Academy curriculum also offers other online world language courses, such as Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, German and Latin. This window to another culture allows language learners to see the world from a different perspective and to understand the language in the right context. The California Department of Education (CDE) helps school districts from pre-K to 12th grade and county education offices plan and implement World Languages (WL) programs. The California State Bilingual Literacy Seal recognizes high school graduates who have achieved a high level of proficiency in speaking, reading and writing one or more languages besides English.
English Language Development Standards (ELD) are also available for students whose primary language is a language other than English. At Miacademy, we strive to make sure our foreign language curriculum is accessible to all students. With more language options and improved methods for practicing and becoming fluent in a second language, virtual schools help students prepare for success in the global economy. Study after study, language learners have demonstrated better reading skills in English than their peers who don't study a second language. The foreign language curriculum also helps students understand the cultures and traditions of the people who speak the chosen language. With our online courses, you can now gain a better understanding of the world around you and develop essential collaboration and communication skills.
