Skill Level Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
This project was founded by Angela Jackson, a business executive whose experiences living and working abroad highlighted for her the advantages multilingualism conferred on children overseas, in terms of both educational and professional opportunities.
Bringing together language instructors, researchers, school administrators, and community leaders, Global Language Project seeks to help disadvantaged public-school students compete in a global economy.
Global Language Project’s first program was launched in 2009 for Harlem third-graders. Today GLP offers instruction in Mandarin, Spanish, and Arabic to more than 600 students in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
