Dual Language Immersion
About Dual Language Immersion
Beginning foreign language instruction early sets the stage for students to develop advanced proficiencies in one or more languages.
Younger learners have the capacity to develop near native-like pronunciation and intonation in the new language. Studies also suggest that children who learn a foreign language receive cognitive benefits that extend to learning in other subjects. Immersed students typically demonstrate higher mental flexibility on tasks, ability to problem solve more fluidly and better communication skills.
Being bilingual enhances opportunities in government, business, law, medicine and health care, teaching, technology, the military, communications, industry, social service, and marketing.
Why Consider a Dual Immersion Program for Your Child?
Parents want their children academically prepared with the 21st-century skill set to compete and succeed in a global marketplace. PVSchools provides students with the pathway to achieve this goal.
The Benefits of Learning a Foreign Language
Research shows that the best time for a child to learn a second language is from birth to 12 years old, while a child’s brain is still developing language skills.
Long-term benefits for a child to learn a second language include performing better than monolingual students on tasks that involve divergent thinking, pattern recognition, and problem-solving.
