Dual Language

Overview

The Puyallup School District joins a select number of districts offering a dual language program at the elementary school level.

Dual Language immersion programs bring together native speakers in two different languages where each is immersed in a new or “target” language. 

In addition to the dual language program being considered an enrichment model, it is also the most effective way for a student to learn a second language. 

Instruction is carefully designed and intentionally conducted in either English or Spanish. As a result, both groups of students have the opportunity to become literate and fluent in both languages.

The class is comprised of one third English speakers, one third Spanish speakers and one third bilingual speakers.
