The Vietnamese Dual Language Immersion is a unique educational program offered at Windmill Springs School that builds student bilingualism and biliteracy in Vietnamese and English. Additionally, students will develop a positive cultural identity and an appreciation of other cultures as a 21st Century global citizen.
The Vietnamese Dual Language Immersion Program integrates native English speaking and native Vietnamese speaking students in the same classroom. The teacher provides academic instruction in the target language for half the day, then the students switch classrooms and teachers, and the new teacher provides academic instruction in the other target language. Students continue to learn standards-based content while they become fluent in two languages; linguistically and academically.
