Parents of rising kindergartners in Lexington One School District are invited to learn more about district offerings that give kids a jump-start on learning new languages.

Lexington One’s Partial-Immersion World Languages Program allows children to learn an foreign language while also being taught subjects like math and science. Students can join partial-immersion in kindergarten and continue through fifth grade.

During a partial-immersion world language class, teachers spend half of the day instructing in French, German, Mandarin Chinese or Spanish. The district’s new school opening in the fall, Deerfield Elementary, will be the first to offer German.

The goal of the program is to create graduates who are leaders in a global marketplace by giving the chance to become multilingual, according to the district.
