Today we decided to steer away from what we usually do on Sundays-give you a round up of this week’s links to articles and news regarding bilingual matters. Instead, and as a way to close this five-day series on dual immersion programs and bilingual education, we’ve compiled a concise list of websites that provide useful resources about this heated topic.

The sites below are a great starting point for parents researching this path.

  • Directory of Foreign Language Immersion Programs in U.S. Schools –CAL’s searchable directory of language immersion programs. This directory includes elementary, middle, and high schools that teach all or part of their curriculum through a second language. Such programs are referred to as total or partial immersion programs. In general, the programs are designed for students whose native language is English.
  • Ñandutí–comprehensive resource on foreign language teaching and learning in grades preK-8. Based on the premise that learning another language is beneficial and that students of all ages can learn a language
  • Heritage Languages in America–The Alliance for the Advancement of Heritage Languages is committed to advancing language development for heritage language speakers in the United States as part of a larger effort to educate members of our society who can function professionally in English and in other languages.

Please feel free to share if you have any additional links you think might help those wanting to get more information on this subject. We thank you for a great week as together we learned more about the often confusing topic of bilingual education.
