Santa Cruz COE Language Ambassadors Student Recognition Program
Who are Language Ambassadors?
Language Ambassadors are students in elementary and middle school who are actively developing a second or third language. They are students who, together with their families, schools and communities, recognize the value of multilingualism in our global economy and multicultural society. Language Ambassadors connect people across languages and cultures.
How does our school become part of the program?
Schools interested in participating should designate a School Language Ambassador Advisor and register below.
What do students need to do to earn the recognition?
Students are asked to complete a variety of activities using their additional language/languages and keep a log of their actions. Students may complete the activities at home, in the community or at school. Requirements are based on the studentís grade-level. Students may be at any stage of language development, from emerging to bridging. Language proficiency assessment is NOT part of the program. This is a student recognition program, not a competition. There is no limit to the number of students you can recognize at your school.
