Chances are, as a parent of a GVIP student, you have asked yourself this question at least once, if not a few times. For some parents, they seize the opportunity to have their child enrolled at a language immersion school with gusto and some are a bit more reserved and questioning, even after enrollment. Heather Singmaster, addresses this common concern in a recent Global Learning Blog on the Education Week website.
She addresses commonly asked questions such as:
Is it true that language immersion is better for their brains?
Will my child be confused?
Do children really learn better in elementary school?
Will they learn English as well as their peers who are not in immersion?
