Spanish FLES/LTC Program

Foreign Language in the Elementary Schools (FLES) / Language through Content (LTC)

Meet our FLES Teacher

The Foreign Language in the Elementary School - Language through Content (FLES-LTC) program, helps students learn a world language through Science and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) integrated content. The program provides language learning opportunities to all students in an elementary school from grades K through 6th.

The goal of FLES/LTC is to develop students’ language proficiency and 21st century skills by teaching World Languages through STEAM, with a strong emphasis on Science. Teachers use Project-Based Learning to help students learn another language while developing skills in all areas. This model supports the five goal areas of the national standards for world languages (communication, culture, connections, comparisons, and communities) and is aligned with the Virginia SOL for World Languages.

At Dranesville Elementary School, Spanish will be taught in the FLES-LTC program.
