The school hopes to eventually intertwine the language program with other programs throughout college.

MACON, Ga. — Mont de Sales College just launched a new language program for their middle school students this year.

“It’s an initiative with Rosetta Stone. It’s a K12 program and it’s different from the consumer version. It’s not like what you would use as an adult,” director Michael Franklin said. .

It’s an option college students can choose to take in class, and the program is online.

“Students can speak into their iPads, it’s recorded, and then measured against native speakers,” Franklin said.

An animator helps students during class hours by giving them tablets to work on.

The students carried out a research project to ensure that the language they had chosen was the right one for them.

“We wanted to make sure they knew they liked what they were going to learn before they got into it,” host Jared Gaum said.

So far, several students have told us that they enjoy it and are learning.

“It’s a lot to take in as soon as you learn. The teachers that are there, they really guide you and instruct you,” said 7th grader Bennie Perkins.

The school hopes to eventually intertwine the language program with other programs throughout college.
