Ukranian-English Bilingual Education
April 23, 2021
The goals of Ukrainian bilingual programs in Saskatchewan are:
- to develop a functional use of the Ukrainian language in the areas of understanding, speaking, reading and writing, within the range of the pupil's experience in the language
- to develop an understanding and appreciation of cultural attitudes and values, as these are reflected in the language, the customs and the traditions of people of Ukrainian origin
- to facilitate the development of positive attitudes towards various languages and cultures.
The ultimate expectation is that pupils in bilingual Ukrainian-English classes develop the knowledge, the skills and the attitudes expected of pupils in unilingual classes while simultaneously acquiring fluency in both languages.
