What is Dual Language Immersion?

  • Dual immersion is a means of acquiring a world language through content matter instruction
  • Students receive math, science, or social studies instruction in a target language, such as Spanish, French, or Chinese
  • Students learn the concepts and skills for the subject area and develop the ability to read, write, speak, and listen in another language
  • Subject area instruction through the target world language occurs for at least 50% of the school day during the elementary school years
  • Teachers are fully proficient in the language they use for instruction
  • Clear and sustained separation of languages is maintained during instructional time
