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.
EWLP Program Vision
The purpose of the EWLP is reflected in Student Programming Goal 2 of the WCS School Board’s Strategic Plan: “to develop and implement a world language curriculum at the elementary, middle, and high school levels in order to increase fluency in a foreign language.”
EWLP Program Goals
The goals of the EWLP are aligned with the National Standards for Foreign Language Education and the Tennessee Elementary Modern Language Standards Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.
- Communicate in languages other than English
- Gain knowledge and understanding of other cultures
- Connect with other disciplines and acquire information
- Develop insight into the nature of language and culture
- Participate in multicultural communities at home and around the world
EWLP: COVID-19 Update
In order to comply with the WCS Reopening Framework for elementary schools, we have decided to postpone the EWLP until all elementary students are consistently on campus. All future updates will be communicated through our EWLP website, WCS email, and your principal.
Thank you to all of those who have expressed interest in our program this semester. We look forward to having your child participate in our program soon!
