What Will Students Learn?

Students will have the opportunity to explore learning Arabic or Russian, two languages that are in high demand in the workforce in our region of Northern Virginia.

Students selected will learn basic Arabic or Russian through the themes of personal and school connections, community connections, interdisciplinary connections, and career connections. Through pre-camp, three-week in-person summer camp, and post-camp activities, students will also be introduced to the Arabic and Russian-speaking peoples and their cultures throughout the globe and to the new opportunities and future possibilities learning these languages can offer in their career pathways and in their lives in general.

Classes will integrate using Arabic and Russian vocabulary and basic language phrases and cross-cultural products, practices, and perspectives while engaging students in interdisciplinary projects, field trips, and activities. Examples include virtual tours of places where the languages are spoken and cultural exposure and exploration through art, food, music, and other entertainment.

While focusing on the two languages and cultures of the Arabic and Russian-speaking worlds, the broader goal is the emphasis on the value added by being bilingual or multilingual.
