Seattle Schools International Schools Newsletter

I didn't know this newsletter, Global Talk, existed and I am glad to provide the link. 

They provide information on travel opportunities for both students and teachers.

Here's one of their great articles.

Earn High School Credits for a Language You Already Know

Are you an 11th or 12th grade student who speaks a language other than English? Can you read and write in it too? Do you want to earn credit for it? If you answered yes to all three questions, then you are a good candidate for the World Language Credit Program. These credits can help meet high school graduation requirements for elective credits and 4-year college admissions requirements for world languages.

Seattle Public Schools is able to sponsor tests for 11th and 12th graders. Younger students (8th-10th grades) may also sign up for testing, but they'll need to pay for their own tests at this time. Over 70 students have already tested this fall with over 70% of them earning 4 credits!

Upcoming test dates and locations:
  • Wednesday, Jan 13, 2016 2:00 pm at Chief Sealth International High School(priority given to Chief Sealth students)
  • Saturday Jan 23, 2016 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at the Seattle World School
  • Saturday Feb 6, 2016 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at the Seattle World School
  • Saturday Mar 19, 2016 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at the Seattle World School
  • Saturday Apr 2, 2016 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at the Seattle World School
For more information, please see the SPS World Language Credits website and watch this short video.
