    Language/Translation Support
    Google Translate: Quick instructions/phrasal translations from English to another language.  Not recommended for larger activities/documents.

    Word Reference: Same as Google Translate, but there is a forum that adds in context.  Still great for words/phrases, not for entire documents. 

    Linguee:  Provides translation services, but Linguee also scours the Internet and gives you direct examples for when a word/phrase has been used and in what context to ensure accuracy.  Good for teachers and students. 

    Social and Emotional Support

    • Email a counselor at WGHS—please reach out. 
    • Text-a-Tip: Text-A-Tip is a 24/7 anonymous text-communication system for youth needing immediate mental health assistance for themselves or a friend.
