Dual Immersion (50:50)

Dual Immersion Programs Rock!

Golden Bell Award-winning Chinese and Korean Dual Immersion Programs:

 

At Cedarlane Academy, the goal of our new Dual Immersion programs in Chinese (starting in 6th grade~) and Korean (starting in Kindergarten~) is to continue the development of students' bilingualism, biliteracy, academic achievement, and cross-cultural competencies through mastery of challenging curriculum in both Chinese/Korean and English.

 

Benefits of a Dual Immersion Program

Research shows there are many benefits for students enrolled in dual immersion programs.  Students develop full oral, reading and writing proficiency in two languages.  Their academic performance is Reading and Math meets and often exceeds state and district standards.  Bilingual students are more creative, better at problem-solving, and score higher on literacy tests.  They also have higher graduation rates, an increased interest in attending college, higher self-esteem and greater cultural awareness.


Cedarlane Academy's Middle School Chinese Dual Immersion programs’ participating students are held to the high level of rigor. Dual Immersion students take two classes taught in Chinese: Chinese language arts (during zero period) and Chinese social studies. The content, scope, sequence, and standards of Chinese social studies is identical to the English course counterpart. Dual Immersion students also take English language arts taught in English, Science, math, P.E., and elective class of their choice. 

 

Korean Dual Immersion program is following a 50:50 Korean/English model and begins in Kindergarten. Native English speakers must begin the Dual Immersion program in elementary school to be eligible to participate in Cedarlane Academy's Middle School Immersion Program. Native Chinese speakers who did not attend an elementary Dual Immersion Program, may begin at Cedarlane Academy, contingent upon tested Chinese language proficiency.  For the Korean Dual Immersion program, any incoming Kinder student is eligible.

Advanced and AP Chinese courses, Korean as a Foreign Language courses as well as an IB program offered at Wilson High School, HLPUSD, are the natural next steps for our Middle School Dual Immersion Students.
