Promoting Dual Language Immersion

Dual language.png

Advanced Spanish students at BSU (SP305, SP404, SP340) collaborated with elementary schools at two community school districts to promote their dual language immersion (DLI) programs. BSU students explored the state of bilingualism in the U.S. and the benefits of programs such as DLI that enable students to develop proficiency in both Spanish and English, strengthen academic learning and achievement, and cultivate intercultural sensitivity. The final community products include:

1) ten-week virtual reading/mentoring sessions in Spanish for 2nd graders in a DLI program;

2) design and production of promotional materials to inform potential parents about DLI programs and their benefits;

3) translation into Spanish several procedure and policy documents for DLI so that these materials are accessible to Spanish-speaking families.
