    Welcome!

     
     
    Georgetown ISD is proud to offer a Dual Language Enrichment Program.  This program can also be referred to as a two-way immersion program. This program provides special language instruction that will prepare students to become bilingual and biliterate and promotes high academic achievement in two languages.
     
    Dual Language education integrates native English speaking and native Spanish speaking students in the same classroom. Students develop oral and cognitive academic language in both English and Spanish while mastering grade level knowledge and skills in all elementary content areas.
     
    Our program is based on a 50/50 model, in which 50% of the instruction is delivered in English and the other 50% is delivered in Spanish. The program is designed to teach children a second language in a natural way through subject content instruction and everyday classroom conversation.

Language Learning at Home

  • We are so excited your children will be learning a second language! We encourage you to spend some time in this section of our site, as we will be adding language learning resources that can be beneficial for you all in the home. While there is no set timeline of when a second language is learned, we do know that with increased exposure, practice, immersion and a strong native language, students can begin to engage their bilingual brains as soon as 3 years. Please feel free to reach out if there is something in particular that you feel would be beneficial to you all while supporting your little ones.
