"One Class" grant will help Billings students learn foreign languages

Posted: Updated:

Learning a new language can be a challenging endeavor, but turning the lesson into a game can often help motivate students.

A Spanish teacher at Billings Central High School is helping bridge the language barrier by taking learning beyond the textbook.

Lisa Skov is this week's recipient of a One Class at a Time $300 grant from Q2 and First Interstate Bank.

Skov said she believes using technology such as Ipad "apps" can help kids engage in language learning. This One Class grant will help ensure students don't have to pay out-of-pocket for that new technology.

Skov said she hopes to motivate her high school students and instill a love of foreign languages.

"I'm always interested in technology because that's how the kids are really engaged," said Skov. "I took a class and learned how to use "Cahoots" and found "Verb Challenge Conjugation," and it helps them to learn how to conjugate."

If you know of a teacher who has a great classroom idea who could use some help with extra funds, let us know. One Class at a Time applications are available on our website at ktvq.com under the community tab.
