Nash County Public Schools Dual Langauge/Spanish Immersion

What is Spanish Immersion?

Spanish Immersion is an exciting program where students are taught by a bilingual teacher for the majority of the school day in the Spanish Language, hence the term immersion. Students are immersed in the Spanish Language.

Spanish Immersion is also known as Dual Language Immersion (DLI) because students are taught in Spanish and English with English instruction beginning in 2nd grade.

Students learn to understand, read, and write in Spanish as well as English.

The Program begins in kindergarten or first grade and continues through middle school.

What Spanish Immersion Means to Me

“It feels super good to be in the Spanish immersion program because you learn a lot about Spanish countries and when you go somewhere and if they speak Spanish you will understand what they are saying and you can have a nice conversation with them. It’s also cool because you can learn Spanish dances and traditions.” - Malia Gupton, Englewood Elementary

What Spanish Immersion Means to Me

“I like the class so I can communicate with my great-grandmother and my other family members. And I can learn it, the reason I learned it was because my parents didn’t learn Spanish. And it was a lifetime opportunity for me. And I like to learn about other Hispanic countries. My ancestors probably knew Spanish. I always wondered what would happen if I knew Spanish and that is why I learned Spanish.” - Victor Neives, Englewood Elementary

What Spanish Immersion Means to Me

“Puedo aprender el idioma que quiero aprender. También es para aprender nuevas cosas importantes que me pueden ayudar cuando a grande. También es para no olvidar mi idioma natal así aprendo inglés y español.” - Karen, Middlesex Elementary

English Translation: I can learn the language I want to learn. It is also to learn new important things that can help me when I grow up. It is also to not forget my native language so I learn English and Spanish.
