Bringing Language Learning To Saskatchewan Schools

Mini-Language Lessons Program related documents & forms

The Mini-Language Lessons Program is one of SAIL's strongest annual programs conducted between October and December (Fall Session) and January and March (Winter Session) every year, throughout Saskatchewan. This program provides opportunities for volunteer Language speakers to teach in the Public, Catholic, and Fransaskois school systems, and allows students to experience a new Language and culture. The program allows school teachers to match multicultural education with existing curriculum in a direct and meaningful way for students. The Mini-Language Lessons Program hopes that the experience gained by students will contribute to the elimination of misunderstanding and racism through the promotion of cultural awareness and acceptance.
