Learning Language Through Immersion
Immersion is the method by which we all learn our native language. As infants, we are surrounded by people speaking a specific language, like we are surround by the air we breathe, and we learn our first language rapidly and with ease. Immersion education in a second language takes the same approach. At Colorado International Language Academy, students spend their day immersed in a second language as they use their natural ability to learn the new language. Learning a second language in this way when young is much easier than learning it later in life.
Benefits of Learning a Second Language
Academic achievement levels of children educated in a second language using an immersion program often surpass those of children educated solely in English.
Our world is becoming more global and interdependent, and there will be increased demand for people who can understand other cultures and communicate with people in other languages.
