Spanish Immersion

What is Spanish Dual Language Immersion?



In an immersion classroom, Spanish is not taught as a subject; Spanish is the language in which instruction is delivered. Immersion students master the curriculum objectives in all subject areas, while becoming fluent in a second language. Research overwhelmingly supports this approach. The cognitive ability of young children to adopt a second language is well documented and considered the best time to learn a second language.

Communities with native Spanish-speaking populations can benefit from the dual immersion model, a program that promotes academic achievement through enrichment rather than remediation. Native English speaking students benefit from the rigor inherent in learning through another language. Native Spanish speakers benefit from the enriched academic environment. Most importantly, Spanish speakers who learn English in a dual immersion classroom become fully fluent in English by 5th grade. In addition, Spanish-speaking children become full proficient in reading and math.

In Spanish Dual Language Immersion classrooms, students receive instruction and learn content through both their native language and target language.
