Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Spotlight

Bilingual education is extremely beneficial to both the Native Speaker and the English language learner. The Dual Language Immersion Environment creates the opportunity for not just the learning of a target language, but the sharing of two worlds. Students do not just become bilingual in this setting, they become biliterate; socially and academically. This is the type of communication that needs to happen in our ever-expanding global community.


La educación bilingüe es extremadamente beneficiosa tanto para el hablante nativo como para el estudiante de inglés. El entorno de inmersión lingüística dual crea la oportunidad no sólo para el aprendizaje de un idioma objetivo, sino para el intercambio de dos mundos. Los estudiantes no sólo se vuelven bilingües en este entorno, se convierten en biliterados; social y académicamente. Este es el tipo de comunicación que debe ocurrir en nuestra comunidad global en constante expansión.
