1 - BILINGUALISM FOR ALL
In contrast to the remedial bilingual education model, which aims to bring English Language Learners (ELL’s) up to speed in English so they can be mainstreamed, dual language immersion is an enrichment model that challenges all students to become fluent in two languages. Classes are often taught by two teachers who each speak exclusively in one language. There is no translation or repeated lessons. Native English speakers and ELLs learn a second language together with no stigma attached.
