ACE: World Languages K-6


iconWHY CHOOSE THIS PROGRAM?
GLOBAL PLUS is a new language program which blends the strengths and proven benefits of 2 previous well established (FCPS / ACE) language programs–FLEX and GLOBAL.
  1. The goal of the GLOBAL PLUS program is to foster a world language advantage by offering high quality language classes to elementary students, and thereby capture the optimal time in a child’s life to learn a new language.

  2. GLOBAL PLUS students will establish a strong foundation in language learning, that will give them an edge as they enter middle school and beyond.

  3. Teachers will now have access to three different curricula that address the needs of different skill levels: first- time learners to heritage speakers.

  4. In support of the FCPS Portrait of a Graduate, the GLOBAL PLUS curriculum delivers a stronger focus on communication. This will provide children with skills to establish meaningful connections as they become GLOBAL citizens of a rapidly changing, increasingly diverse and interconnected world.
