Images from Shutterstock.com The three main types of immersion
•Full Immersion (90/10): The partner language is used most or all of the day in the primary grades (80-90%), and all students learn to read in the partner language first. The amount of English is gradually increased until English and the partner language are each used 50% of the time, usually starting in third grade. (That 10% of your day is your native language and 90% is the unfamiliar language). What does immersion look like in schools Change in education and the effect in immersion on students (culture,knowledge,life) Becoming Bilingual:
Schools by Sammy Roman

-What does bilingual and immersion mean?

-A monolingual person is a person who only speaks their native language.-A bilingual person is a person who speaks their native language and their learned language.

Language immersion is a method of teaching a language, usually a second language, in which the target language is used as both curriculum content and media of instruction. There are three generic levels of entry into language immersion education divided according to age: What is immersion? 82.8%
-In well-implemented programs, both native English speakers and native speakers of the unfamiliar language tend to do as well or better in English, the partner language, and tests of academic achievement than their peers in other educational programs.
Here is data from a local Dual Language School: Hopewell elementary (dark blue), Randolph county school district (light blue), and North Carolina (gray). For fifth,fourth and third. As you can see, students at Hopewell immersion school perform higher in their test score than the average North Carolina student

In the graph it shows that learning another language can help you be successful in school which will help you graduate from high school and go on to college and have increase your job options. -In a spanish immersion classroom students speak English as their native language but they are expected to read,write,and speak spanish.
-Two-way bilingual immersion programs put together native English speakers and native speakers of a different language for academic instruction through both languages.
-Unlike ESL ( English as a Second Language) programs where only language minority students are learning the dominant language, the programs designed by the Two Way model are options that benefit both language minority and language majority students. So it benefits everyone. •Partial Immersion/Two way (50/50): The partner language and English are used equally throughout the program, and students learn to read in both English and the partner language.
(That your native language and your unfamiliar language is taught equally) . •"Differentiated": Some programs separate students from each language group for part of the day for formal literacy instruction, so that students learn to read in their primary language( Giving them as much help as need in their native language and unfamiliar language). Interviews Early immersion: Students begin the second language from age 5 or 6.

Middle immersion: Students begin the second language from age 9 or 10.

Late immersion: Students begin the second language between ages 11 and 14.

It is best for students to begin the immersion program early because it takes five years to speak,write,and read fluently.

So I thought of it and then asked my dad, and then he said that one way students can become fluent in another language is through an immersion school. So then I thought: "what do they do at an immersion school and how does it help them?" I did some research and that is how I thought of my project.

After I did my project I learned that one of the benefits of an immersion school you increase knowledge as reflected in test scores. Also, when you complete the program you will be able to read,write, and speak another language fluently.Which will help you later in life by increasing job opportunities , because you will be able to speak two languages with accuracy. A bonus is also to be able to travel to more places by being able to talk to people that speak another language.
