what is the difference between
What is the difference between:
  • Bilingual education- Two languages are used for instruction at the same time. Usually the goal is to help speakers become fluent in English. Sometimes a program has an added goal of strengthening the home language.
  • Full immersion- The target language is spoken all day in every subject. The teaching of English literacy skills begins at about age eight.
slide3
Dual immersion- The population being served consists of roughly 50% English speakers and 50% target language speakers. The goal is to help both groups become fluent in the other language.
  • Partial immersion- A portion of the daily instruction is conducted in the target language. The goal is to increase students’ fluency in the target language.
