DLI parents

This ERIC Digest publication addresses some of the initial questions parent may have about language immersion programs. It answers the following questions:

  • What is a foreign language immersion program and how does it work?
  • Why should I consider enrolling my child in an immersion program?
  • How will learning everything in a second language affect my child’s English language and literacy development?
  • Will my child become proficient in the second language? How long will that take?
  • Is immersion an appropriate choice for all children?
  • What can I do to support my child’s immersion experience if I don’t speak the second language?
