Why language immersion?
Perhaps you already know the value of learning a foreign language and you want your child to be bilingual. But maybe you don’t know the difference between language classes and language immersion, or you’re just debating on whether language immersion is the best route to take.
You may have questions about language immersion, such as: Will it affect my child’s ability to learn other academic subjects? Will it impair their proficiency of the English language? And so on.
These are great questions to ask! The best part is, not only will language immersion not hinder your child’s education in any way, it will enhance and improve it!
First off, what is language immersion? Simply put, the difference between language immersion and language lessons is that with language immersion, all academic subjects (math, science, social studies, etc.) are taught IN the foreign language. So rather than studying the language itself, the student is “immersed” in it.
Studies have shown that language immersion is the best way to become truly fluent in another language. And children’s brains (especially young children’s) are developmentally able to accept and learn foreign languages much faster and more perfectly than adults’ brains. View our Research page for more information.
At Frontiers Academy, we employ a full-immersion model:
Our model differs slightly from other full immersion models in that we teach English beginning in preschool (as opposed to later grades), to ensure all students are equally proficient in the English language.
