Dual-language Immersion

Dual-language Immersion
Project Overview: 

Project Coordinators: Gabriela Appel (Penn State) and Brody Bluemel (Delaware State University)
Partner: Delaware State University

The state of Delaware offers an immersion program in Chinese and Spanish in 31 schools across the state. When students graduate from these programs they will likely exceed AP level proficiency. To offer those students appropriate courses that make it possible for them to continue with their language studies at a higher level, we planned a project which will formulate viable content-based courses at the high-school and college-levels that help those students to continue to develop their proficiency.
