WHAT IS LANGUAGE IMMERSION?
Language immersion programs are an exciting option for parents who want their children to have the advantages of a rigorous academic program while also learning two languages – English and a target language in a Spanish immersion program. Spanish is not taught as a subject. Spanish is the language in which instruction is delivered.
results speak for themselves: By the end of kindergarten, students can
respond to their teacher, answer questions, read and write in Spanish.
By the end of fifth grade, students are completing grade-level academic
work in Spanish and speaking conversational Spanish.
Language immersion starts at kindergarten and continues through the
fifth grade. Non only will you child be proficient in Spanish at the
end of elementary school, they will also be fully prepared to succeed in
a traditional non-immersion classroom. In fact, research indicates
that children who acquire a second language are better able to
problem-solve and think creatively.
