This fall, students from Cornell will visit the Southworth Library with the Foreign language Introduction Program to bring a global experience to school aged kids! They will come on Thursday November 17 from 3:30 – 4:30 to teach Hebrew and Mandarin languages and culture and on Thursday, December 1 from 3:30 – 4:30 to teach French and Italian languages and culture.
With an increasingly globalized world and a high chance of encountering people from different cultures, familiarity with foreign languages and cultures is vital from a young age.
Formerly known as the Afterschool Language and Culture Program (ALCP), the Einaudi Center’s Foreign Language Introduction Program (FLIP) has introduced thousands of children in Upstate New York to world languages and cultures. Volunteers from Cornell and surrounding communities who speak foreign languages provide fun ways for K–12 students to learn about and engage with our increasingly interconnected world.
Registration is required here to save your spot. This program is designed for kids in 3 – 5 grade.
There is limited busing available from the Dryden Elementary School on those days on a first come basis- forms need to be submitted to the school as soon as possible. FLIP Bus-Permission-slip-2022
