    Taxonomy Code: HH-4450

    Programs offered by English-speaking school districts that provide classes in regular school subjects such as math, science and social studies that are taught in the immersion language enabling students to acquire the language as they learn the content. Once a firm base in the immersion language has been established, instruction in English language arts is added, and instruction in the English language gradually increases. Students generally continue to receive instruction in certain subjects in the immersion language so that by the end of secondary school, proficiency is achieved in both languages. Included are total immersion programs in which all classes are taught in the immersion language; partial immersion programs in which half of the subjects are taught in the immersion language (with material in some cases, reinforced in English); and dual (or two-way) language immersion programs in which one to two thirds of the students speak the immersion language natively, the others speaking English natively.
