Imagine there was a new way of teaching that results in most students becoming truly bilingual and biliterate before finishing high school. Imagine if this new way of teaching also helped students rise in academic achievement overall. And finally. imagine if this new way of teaching could also help students develop more empathy towards others. We don’t have to just imagine it, it exists. It goes by the name dual-language education. or dual-language immersion, and it’s growing fast in America. In Part I of our coverage of dual-language education, we hear from two luminaries in the field who explain what it’s about and how it got started—not at the national level, but at the state level. The America the Bilingual podcast is part of the Lead with Languages campaign of ACTFL — The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.
