HCS WORLD LANGUAGES & ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS

 

The World Language Department seeks to provide the opportunity for students to achieve linguistic fluency in a second language and to develop cultural understanding of the people and countries where the language is spoken. Within the scope of the level of study, students will be able to perform with reasonable success in each of the following areas:

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

  • Students will learn to communicate with others in a language other than English.

  • Students will improve their understanding of and ability to communicate in the English language
    by comparing and contrasting another language with their own.

ENHANCE CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING

  • Students will develop an awareness of and an appreciation for another people’s unique way of life,
    the patterns of behavior that order their world, and the ideas and perspectives that guide their behaviors.

  • Students will learn about other cultures’ contributions to the world and how these contributions have
    shaped international perspectives.

EXTENDED ACCESS TO INFORMATION

  • Students will connect with other disciplines through foreign language study, enabling them to reinforce
    and expand their understanding of the interrelationships among content areas.
  • Students will access information in more than one language, giving them a greater range of resources
    and richer base of knowledge

INCREASED GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE

  • Students will respond to and contribute to their communities and the world in a more informed and
    effective manner as a result of the global perspective gained in a foreign language class.
  • Students will gain additional prospects for further education and career opportunities as a result of foreign language study

Please contact the ELL Department to schedule an appointment for an English proficiency screening.

The language proficiency screening consists of a listening, speaking, reading, and writing component. Potential ELL students in grades K-12 must take this assessment before they can register in Hampton City Schools.  At the completion of the screening, the student will be directed to their school to register. A parent or guardian must accompany the student to the ELL office for the screening to be administered.

 

It is the parents’ right to refuse ELL services.  Once a student has been identified as Limited English Proficient, he/she will be re-evaluated yearly.  Parents will be notified of the testing results by mail.

 

Hampton City Schools requires all potential students to provide the following documents  when being evaluated for ELL Services. Please refer to the school registration process for required documentation.

  • Student’s Birth Certificate and/or passport
  • A photo ID or passport of the student’s parent or guardian
