Language Immersion Schools

These days a lot of people are interested in language immersion schools and there are language immersion schools for all kinds of languages. There's either the 90/10 language immersion program, where 90% of the instruction in kindergarten is in the foreign language with 10% being in English. Every year they add 10% in English, so that by the time the children graduate the end of elementary school they will be 50/50 in English and the foreign language. The other type of language immersion program is a 50/50 program where 50% of the day is spent in the foreign language. the other 50% of the day is spent repeating the same lesson in English so that your child has an opportunity to consolidate their learning, and this is especially useful if the parents do not speak the foreign language that the child is studying.
