The Broadcast Educational Media Commission has asked 12 public television stations around the state to create career videos for a multimedia video series. CET and ThinkTV – the two stations of Public Media Connect – are working to put together a video about careers using foreign language education. The crew visited the Academy of Multilingual Immersion Studies in Cincinnati to talk to Alma Uribe and Christian Mora about teaching foreign languages.
Alma and Christian are both native English speakers. It was awesome to hear about what it means for them to teach a foreign language to kids who at the elementary school age at a school that places an emphasis on exposure to foreign languages. The resulting video will be featured on the governor's state website for Jobs Ohio and will be posted on our YouTube channel and PBS Learning Media.
Here are some photos and a quick video we took during the school's multicultural field day:
