Adjuncts who are present in the classroom are fluent in either Japanese or Spanish. Their job is to model the target language for the students. They are an additional resource for the children in the classroom in every context.
Who pays for them? You do. With your help, ALLEM raises the money to pay the salaries, tax obligations, workman’s compensation, and payroll expenses so that the teachers can have another resource for modeling the target language for your children.
