What is Dual Language Immersion?

Dual Language Immersion programs bring together native English speakers and native speakers of another language in a unique opportunity for both groups to learn both languages to high levels. In the program at Stonebrae Elementary School, students are taught all in Mandarin for approximately half of the day and all in English for the remainder of the day. Interactive, thematic lessons encourage students from both language groups to help each other to understand, speak, read and write each other’s language.
