Language Ambassadors

Every year, LILA welcomes Language Ambassadors to our classrooms. These young adults are native speakers of Spanish or Mandarin, and they have completed or are about to complete their university degrees in education. They assist our teachers in the classroom and provide language and culture models for our students. They work with individual students and small groups or supervise activities of the large group, allowing the teacher to give more attention to students who need more help or more challenge. LILA families apply to host the Language Ambassadors for one half of the school year. It’s a cultural exchange with lifelong benefits!
