During the process of a language immersion education, there may be times that your child is ahead of, at par with or behind his peers who are not in a language immersion program. Some research suggests that at times there may be a temporary lag in development between the ages of six and ten, but the lag is only temporary. Research also shows that language immersion students quickly catch up, and many surpass their monolingual peers by 5th grade. The advantages in thinking and self-esteem that come from learning a second language far outweigh the temporary lag that your child may experience from time to time during the learning process.
How will my child progress compared to other children his/her age who are not in a language immersion program?
