The link below is to a two-way immersion school in Austin, Texas. It is scheduled to be opened Fall of 2009! I am so excited because it uses what is, in my opinion, the best methods to learn an additional language (the two-way immersion or dual language model). The school will also teach Chinese mandarin and have an IB (International Baccalaureate) program.
I had the opportunity to teach in two-way immersion program in Kansas City, MO and observed the great benefits it can have in a community and on children!
The school is going through one of the many processes required by TEA (Texas Education Agency) before actually being approved as a “charter, ” so keep you fingers crossed. The hard work various key individuals have put into making this a reality is paying off!!!!
