Overview of Dual Language Immersion

In Georgia dual language programs, the students spend at least half of their school day in the target language and the other half-day in English. Immersion students are taught Math, Science, Literacy and sometimes Social Studies in the target language. They are taught English Language Arts, Reading, and usually Specials in English. DLI students develop the ability to read, write, and communicate in their first and second languages, which prepares them for full participation in today’s interconnected and increasingly competitive global context.
