Dual Language Immersion

Dr. Katheryn Lindholm-Leary, one of the country’s leading experts on dual immersion programs defines them as:

"[In dual immersion programs] English-dominant and target-language-dominant students are purposefully integrated with the goals of developing bilingual skills, academic excellence, and positive cross-cultural and personal competency attitudes for both groups of students." (Lindholm-Leary, 2001 pg. 30)

In dual immersion programs, students learn content through both their native language and the target language.  Simultaneous translation is never used.
