to be expanded

By the New Haven Register

In Connecticut, the school systems is expanding its Chinese and Arabic language classes and including parents in the learning process.

See this quote:

“Part of the grant “involves the design and implementation of a Saturday program where students and parents attend separate classes focused on the language program the child has chosen. Parents will learn basic language skills and cultural aspects, and there will be field trips that parents and students enjoy together,” the statement said.”

Great idea to get the parents involved!
