WHAT IS DUAL LANGUAGE IMMERSION?
Utah’s Dual Language Immersion program (DLI) offers a rich bilingual experience for young learners when their minds are developmentally best able to acquire language. Students who complete the program will achieve high levels of language proficiency in a second language. Instruction is divided equally (50/50) between two high-quality, creative classrooms and teachers where they receive instruction in English and in the target second language. Students begin the program in the first grade and remain in the program through the twelfth grade.
