New teaching method being used for languages


It was introduced at Monday night's Niles Community Schools Board of Education Meeting that the World Language Department at Niles High School has implemented a new method for teaching foreign language.


The problem, according to Niles Community Schools Curriculum Director Jim Craig, is that students were losing interest in foreign languages and walking away with things they really never used in the outside world.

"The new method has changed the approach of teaching foreign languages for sixth grade students up. It is an instructional approach that teaches students to speak and write the foreign language the same way they were taught to speak and write in English," Craig said.
