Multilingual Learners

Hamden is proud of our community's diversity - and that includes our students who are not native English language speakers. We have over 40 different languages spoken by our students!  Hamden offers a number of services and activities to meet the needs of our Multilingual Learners (ML).

"Language is not a genetic gift, it is a social gift.  Learning a new language is becoming a member of the club- the community of speakers of that language." - Frank Smith 

"Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things." - Flora Lewis
