Mother Language Program

“The research is very clear about the importance of bilingual children’s mother tongue for their overall personal and educational development.... Children’s knowledge and skills transfer across languages from the mother tongue they have learned in the home to the school language.”

- Dr. Jim Cummins, professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education

The goal of the Mother Language program is for the student to become communicatively competent in the four skill areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing in their mother tongue. This program encourages parents to participate in their children's academic program through home activities and classroom involvement.

Registration is open for this year's Russian MLP classes at AAS. Students that would like to continue their Russian mother language, or new students interested in joining the program, should register online for pre-assessment.

There is an additional fee for participation.
