Special report: Learning a language online
from eSchool News
In tiny Weybridge, Vt., the most common industry is farming. Yet the fifty or so students in the town's K-6 elementary school are preparing for a much larger world of opportunities by learning a second language. With just four full-time teachers at Weybridge Elementary, that poses a challenge. The school does have a part-time Spanish teacher who comes in three days a week, says Principal Christina Johnston — but it's an online curriculum developed by Middlebury Interactive Languages, in collaboration with faculty from nearby Middlebury College, that is helping to fill the gap.
