Three Major Benefits of Dual Language Learning

1- Researchers have found that actively using two languages seems to have a protective effect against age-related dementia.
2- In studies covering six states and 37 districts, they have found that, compared with students in English-only classrooms or in one-way immersion, dual-language students have somewhat higher test scores and also seem to be happier in school. Attendance is better, behavioral problems fewer, parent involvement higher.
3- It turns out that, in many ways, the real trick to speaking two languages consists in managing not to speak one of those languages at a given moment — which is fundamentally a feat of paying attention.

DATA GRAPH OF BENEFITS OF A TWO-WAY DUAL LANGUAGE PROGRAM

As more and more students in The United States grow up in families that speak other languages other than English, Two-Way Dual Language programs make so much sense. Notice that the research-based graph below clearly shows that Two-Way Dual Language programs are superior to all other programs to helping non-native English-speaking students even surpass their English only-speaking counterparts. We are living in a very diverse world, and being highly proficient in two of the most dominant languages spoken in the world would be a tremendous benefit to your son or daughter’s future!
