Dual Language Immersion at SCVi

SCVi learner raises hand

Dual language immersion refers to teaching and learning in two languages. Learners enrolled in SCVi’s dual language immersion program, now serving grades K-5, are taught 50 percent of the instructional time in Spanish by a native Spanish-speaking facilitator and 50 percent of the instructional time in English by an English-speaking facilitator.

Learners share the same curriculum and project-based opportunities as their peers and have exposure to the same state standards while receiving instruction in both languages. The Spanish and English-speaking teachers collaborate on teaching all subject material.

The benefits of dual language immersion:

  • More than 40 years of research consistently documents the power of language immersion programs to help learners attain high levels of second-language proficiency.
  • No other type of instruction, short of living in a second-language environment, is as successful.
  • Young children especially thrive in this type of instructional environment.
