Woodhull students not in the dual language program explore various world language

December 17, 2021

Woodhull Intermediate School fifth graders who are not currently enrolled in the dual language program will soon be listening to presentations by World Language Honor Society officers and faculty advisors that will assist the youngsters as the go about choosing a language to study as sixth graders.

Woodhull students who aren’t participating in the dual language program have an opportunity to start a language other than English experience in the fifth grade. They are able to gain exposure to different cultures and languages, including French, Italian, Latin and Spanish.

From their experience as fifth grader, the youngsters continue on their pathway and choose the first half of their Checkpoint A high school language credit.

As the students move on to J. Taylor Finley Middle School, they will take the second half of the Checkpoint A credit and receive their first full high school language credit by the completion of seventh grade. Once they move to eightth grade, they will take their second high school level course.

The coming presentations are slated for January 2022. Mr. Oshrin will be sending a letter to parents about them soon. Students/parents will be asked to indicate their language preference for the next school year. All dual language students will continue their studies in a high school Regents level Spanish course. “These fantastic students will leave Woodhull with two high school credits,” Mr. Oshrin said.

Woodhull prides itself on providing a quality world language program of study and students and parents have responded positively to it over the years.

“We offer a robust world language program for our students,” Mr. Oshrin said. “I want to thank the world language and dual language teachers for their dedication to the program and students. They are amazing. I would also like to thank our program director, Judy Goris Moroff, for always supporting our students and staff in their world language experiences.”
