Auburn University’s Center for Educational Outreach and Engagement, or CEOE, is partnering with Synchro International Education to provide a multilingual after-school program for Spring 2018 that offers a mix of academic and recreational multilingual study.

The program, scheduled for Jan. 10 through April 27, will serve K-9 grade students in the Auburn-Opelika area. Classes in Spanish, Mandarin Chinese and English (English as a Second Language, or ESL) will be offered.

The objective of the program is to prepare the students for successful careers in the global economy by developing their language skills and cultural awareness. What makes it unique is its high-quality language education and exciting and engaging multicultural activities. The carefully developed curriculum goes far beyond a typical after-school program.
