St. Norbert College Language Services will offer foreign-language programs for children this fall.

The Pre-Collegiate Children's Language Institute will teach before- and after-school language classes in Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese and Italian to first through sixth-graders during the school year. Classes are taught by St. Norbert College students majoring in foreign languages and/or education. The program is based on a nationally recognized elementary language curriculum and uses art, music, games and other activities to teach languages.

Classes will be offered at the following elementary schools during the 2013-14 school year:

Langlade Elementary: Spanish, Monday and Wednesday before school.

Language Services will also present Passports to the World Day Camp. This language and culture program is especially for children ages 5-11. Taught by St. Norbert College students, it combines a basic language curriculum with cultural activities to explore various areas of the world. The program runs on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon from Oct. 12 to Nov. 16. The cost is $95 per student.
