What is Immersion Learning?

Language immersion is an educational approach in which students are taught the curriculum content through the medium of a second language. In this way, immersion students not only learn the content, but also gain knowledge of the language in which it is taught. 

The main purpose of this method is to develop learners' language proficiency in their target language in addition to the English language, in other words, foster bilingualism. 

 

 What are the goals of an immersion program? 

• To achieve proficiency in the target language (listening, speaking, reading & writing)

• To acquire the same English language arts skills as students in English-only programs 

• To gain a greater understanding and appreciation of other cultures

• To become proficient in all content areas
