We love the Spanish language and Hispanic cultures. We love teaching and learning about them, as well as speaking, writing, listening, viewing, and reading about every corner of the Spanish-speaking world. We love the richness that is just waiting to be found IN Spanish, and THROUGH Spanish.

So this month, we are thankful for the Spanish language and to the Spanish teachers, for passing this richness along to your students.

Nov 20 Total Immersion and Partial Immersion Programs: Different Models - Resources for your Spanish Classroom

TOTAL IMMERSION PROGRAMS:  Total Immersion or One Way Immersion Programs are programs in which English-speakers are taught all academic subjects in Spanish.  The program begins in Kindergarten and continues up to grade 5 or grade 6 depending on the configuration of the elementary school. Besides their Spanish immersion in academics, students learn to read in Spanish first rather than in English. Since no English is spoken in the classroom, parents whose children are enrolled in Total Immersion Programs are encouraged to work with their children on their English language skills at home.  Parents read books to their children in English, do various activities that develop English language skills, and of course converse in English with their children.

Cuando llegué a los Estados Unidos, nunca pensé que dominar mi idioma, el español, iba a convertirse en el centro de mi profesión. Después de muchos años de estudios, hoy me encuentro impartiendo español como segundo idioma y, en realidad, es una profesión que me encanta. Por eso estoy agradecida de dominar este hermoso y complejo idioma.

If you think about total immersion education, you could probably say that all students have experienced a “total immersion program.”  Since the time they are born, children begin learning English from their parents and later are immersed in English as they study all of their subjects in English. In addition, students study English Language Arts to enhance and improve their English language skills.  Native Spanish-speakers from different Spanish-speaking countries are immersed in the very same way learning Spanish from their parents and studying their academic subjects in Spanish.  Native-speakers also take additional Spanish Language Arts courses to enhance and improve their Spanish language skills.
