Language Immersion Method

Language Immersion Method: Language immersion means exactly what it says: Immerse the child in the target language. Atlanta Trilingual Academy immerses students in Spanish & Chinese for a significant portion of the day. Daily instruction is delivered in the target language rather than teaching the language as a separate subject or via translating. Immersion methods of teaching require action and movement to help the child associate an action or thing with the words he/she hears. In addition to being the most effective method it also becomes fun for young children who love to move around. Think about how you learned your first language or how a baby is taught from birth. There is no knowledge of the language and teaching is done using gestures, action and showing the students exactly what your words are referring to. The immersion method allows students to master all components of a language: reading, writing and speaking and is the most effective method of reaching fluency.
