Welcome to the Dual Language Program



What is the definition of Dual Language?

It is an educational model in which both native English speakers and speakers of another language (in our case Spanish) receive instruction together in both languages to promote second language acquisition, high academic achievement, and cross-cultural understanding for all the students. Language learning takes place primarily through content instruction. Linguistic proficiency in both languages is developed as students develop their knowledge of subject matter through performing academic tasks.

 The 50/50 model.

There are several models of dual language two-way immersion education. Angleton ISD is utilizing the 50/50 model, which utilizes both languages for instruction, 50 percent of the time in each language.
