Dual Language


World Languages 


Why study World Languages?

Language is a vital part of our lives. Not only as a way of communicating thoughts and ideas, but it is the heart of our society. Learning another language is a key component in today’s global society. Preparing our students to become global citizens and college and career ready is the goal of our school district. 

The Clayton County Public Schools World Languages program is designed to meet the various needs of the diverse student body. Students have the opportunity to choose languages such as the Modern Languages of Chinese, French, Spanish, and the classical language of Latin.

Clayton County students who include World Languages instruction as part of their curriculum will be prepared to speak with and understand others whose language is not English. They will be able to read and write the language at an ability equal to the length of their study.

Dual Language Immersion Programs

What is dual language education?

Dual language is a form of bilingual education in which students are taught literacy and content in two languages. Dual language programs foster bilingualism, biliteracy, enhanced awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity, and high levels of academic achievement through instruction in two languages.
