Dual Language and Multilingual Education
Dual language education is an effective approach to developing language proficiency integrating native English speakers and native speakers of another language for academic content instruction through both English and the partner language.
These programs promote bilingualism and biliteracy, grade-level academic achievement, and cross-cultural competence in all students. Students maintain their native language while adding another language, and they develop pride in their own culture while developing an understanding of others. CAL has conducted research on the implementation and effects of this approach and offers a variety of resources for schools and parents.
We invite you to browse our offerings below and to contact us to discuss your needs and interests.
