Yorkshire Academy is excited to offer a wonderful program called MILK (Morning Intensive Language Klass) as a way to further enhance its language program.
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.”
MILK is designed for those students who want to learn either Chinese or Spanish in an accelerated and comprehensive manner. Both Chinese and Spanish classes are offered Monday through Thursday from 7:00 to 7:40 a.m. for Kindergarten through 5th grade students. These early mornings show a commendable commitment to adding this additional skill set for the students, but we strongly feel the reward is worth the effort.
While Yorkshire is pleased to offer Spanish throughout its regular curriculum for Pre-K–5th grade students, and Spanish once per week after school, the MILK program will truly enable student to learn these languages much more quickly.
If this program continues to be successful, Yorkshire may expand into other foreign languages in future years.
