Creating Confident Language Learners

Our Elementary World Language Program (EWLP) is based on a Foreign Language Exploratory model (FLEX). FLEX programs aim to give students a foundation for world language study while encouraging communication. Our Williamson County FLEX program will nurture speaking and listening skills while also helping students develop an appreciation of other cultures and customs.
