World Language offerings streamlined

posted on June 01, 2016

We have listened to your feedback during the recent school years and are happy to announce that World Language offerings from Michigan Virtual School are streamlined to better meet your students’ needs.

We have taken steps to create more clarity in the progression of courses by removing duplicate offerings and retaining courses based on the strength of the content from various providers. This will increase the continuity for learners over time as they move through the sequence of World Language study.

We expect that this will also increase our users’ satisfaction by decreasing the likelihood of technical difficulties with some language programs used previously.

The following World Languages are offered by Michigan Virtual School in the 2016-17 school year. MVS provides highly qualified teachers, certified by the State of Michigan in the courses they instruct.
