P.S. 20 Launches French Dual-Language Program

Here is a recent article about the launch of a French Dual language Program at P.S. 20 Clinton Hill School in Brooklyn. Great news!

Native French and English-speaking kindergarteners will learn together in one classroom at P.S. 20 in Clinton Hill this fall, through a new French dual-language program.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for children to become bilingual,” said Shareen Anderson, a parent who helped bring the program to the school. “We can give kids a bilingual education in the public school system.”

Dual language classes, ideally, are made up of 24 children – 12 Francophones and 12 Anglophones – with some variation depending on enrollment, Anderson said. The school, on Adelphi Street, already has a French program in which students receive at least 2 hours of French instruction per week, according to the principal, Lena Barbera.
