Kindergarten through second-grade students in the Korean dual-language immersion program at Keppel Elementary School performed traditional Korean children’s stories Wednesday.
Kindergartners sang about tadpoles, and first-graders starred in a play about two stepsisters, Kongjwee and Patjwee. Second-graders performed a Korean mask dance.
Because students are learning a new alphabet, instruction is half in Korean and half in English. The Korean program is one of six languages in the Foreign Language Academy of Glendale.
