AIM French | American Sign Language
At EBS we recognize the power of being able to communicate effectively. We offer the following language programs to support our students in becoming effective communicators.
American Sign Language (ASL) As part of our "Total Communication" approach to teaching, all students are given sign instruction in conjunction with the AIM French program by converting the gestures to ASL signs. Our students very quickly learn to speak French and sign at the same time, and the sign supports French learning for the hearing impaired students in the school. Outside of French class, the use of sign brings a visual and kinaesthetic component to lessons, helping students of all learning styles to take an active role in learning new concepts.
