Three foreign languages are taught at Ashbrook Independent School: French, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese.
Foreign Language Study at Ashbrook:
Kindergarten students begin studying one of three languages (Spanish, French, or Mandarin Chinese), depending on which language is taught that year.
Students study the same language through grade four.
Lower School students (K-4) meet daily for 30 minutes.
In grade five, students have the opportunity to switch to a different language, if desired.
Middle School students (5-8) meet 2-3 times per week for 50 minutes.
Each February, all language students participate in the Foreign Language Festival which celebrates the study of foreign languages and cultures. Students create and present skits, sing authentic songs, and perform cultural dances.
