Benefits of Language Immersion

Language education that starts early and involves children in daily communication and content learning provides children the opportunity to develop a second language as naturally as they learned their first language.

Learning a second language prepares students to communicate with more people and to compete in a global economy, where proficiency in more than one language represents a significant advantage.

The state of Utah has a nationally recognized immersion program. The video below talks about their program and discusses more of the benefits associated with immersion programs in general.
