Why Dual Language?
Dual Language provides students the opportunity to become bilingual, bi-literate and bi-cultural while preparing them for success in a global society.
Dual Language is a program in which students will learn to master a second language. Students will speak, read, write and comprehend in both languages. The program integrates native English speakers and native speakers of another language.
What are the benefits?
A Dual Language program will develop second language skills while learning content knowledge in both languages. This type of program provides an opportunity for students to practice language skills with each other and it fosters equal status and mutual respect for each of the two languages.
