Does being in a Spanish immersion program impact my child’s speaking and reading capabilities in English?
In short, no! Immersion students ultimately perform better in English than their peers who are not in an immersion program!
If my child has a speech delay or is currently in speech therapy will Spanish immersion impede this process?
Children with speech delays and/or who are in speech therapy often succeed in immersion programs! Consult your child’s doctor for specific concerns.
Will students be confused when their teachers only speak Spanish if they haven’t had any Spanish exposure before?￼
No, studies show that children have a greater ability than adults to naturally and easily learn language skills!
Yes, but they will respond to your child in Spanish! In emergency situations, teachers will be able to identify and help students as needed.
