What is Dual Immersion?
Dual Language Immersion provides a way to learn academic content while acquiring another language at the same time. Students receive math, science, and social studies instruction in a target language, such as Spanish, Chinese, French, German, Russian, or Portuguese. The teaching strategies used supports students in learning the concepts and skills for the subject area and develop the ability to read, write, speak, and listen in another target language.
The goals are for the students to develop literacy skills in both English and the target language while attaining academic achievement that is at or above their grade level as measured by Utah Core Testing.
More than 40 years of research consistently documents the power of immersion programs to help students attain high levels of second language proficiency. No other type of instruction, short of living in a second-language environment, is as successful.
Young children especially thrive in this type of instructional environment. Additionally, language immersion is also the least expensive way to deliver second-language instruction.
