Dual Language Method
This is a Program in which two languages are used for instruction: English and, in our case, a local language. 50% of instruction is provided by a mother tongue teacher and 50% is provided by an English mother tongue teacher, working together as a team. The students are integrated during most of the day, allowing them to learn from each other as proficient peer models. This model allows for additive bilingualism for all students, meaning that academic progress will be maintained in the first language while the student obtains proficiency in a second language.
