NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City nonprofit that supports language instruction in public schools is teaming up with Barnes & Noble to help students keep learning languages over the summer.

The bookstore chain will feature a selection of children’s books in Spanish and Mandarin this week for its partnership with the Global Language Project.

The Barnes & Noble on East 86th Street in Manhattan will host a Spanish sing-along Wednesday afternoon.

The Global Language Project started in 2009 in one elementary school in Washington Heights and has expanded to 10 schools.

Additionally, founder Angela Jackson says about 50 schools around the nation are using curriculum materials developed by the group.

Jackson says the group’s mission is to “open the world” to children in underserved schools.
