In New York City, we provide bilingual programs (Transitional Bilingual Education and Dual Language) that strengthen students’ native language development and content knowledge while they build their social and academic English skills. We also provide English as a New Language (ENL) programs that use strategies for English language development with native language support so that students develop language and content knowledge in English.
