Types of world languages programs

 

Partial immersion

Partial immersion language programs provide a total language experience in a multicultural setting for students whose parents would like them to have the advantage of becoming proficient in two languages – English and a second language – by the time they complete the kindergarten through grade six sequence of the program. Download the Language Immersion Programs fact sheet

 

FLES

In a traditional Foreign Language in the Elementary School model, the focus is on language and culture, unlike immersion where the focus is content (i.e. science) taught through the language. Students receive lessons in language and culture one to two times per week.
