YSGA initiates bilingual instruction from Kindergarten through 8th grade, offering a program that blends a widely spoken language (Spanish) with a crucial language (Turkish). In this context, a "critical" language refers to one for which there is a significant demand for individuals who can proficiently listen, speak, read, and write in that language.

Exposure

From K-2nd grade, students are exposed to the Spanish and Turkish languages and cultures. Students are learning the alphabet, as well as keywords and phrases. The goal is to have students be able to repeat the words and phrases being learned.

Word Knowledge

From 3rd-5th grade, students are learning keywords and phrases. The goal is to have students be able to repeat the words and phrases, as well as recognize those words and phrases when listening to the teacher, a peer, or a multimedia presentation.

Fluency

From 4th-8th grade, students have developed a bank of words and phrases in both Spanish and Turkish. Students will use these words and phrases to communicate. Students will be able to listen and respond both orally and in written form.

Accuracy

From 6th-8th grade, students have learned a variety of words and phrases. Students will be able to listen, speak, read and write in both languages using appropriate grammar and conventions of the target language.
