Education Week (9/16, Mitchell) reports the number of languages offered through dual-immersion programs in schools is growing across the country. New York City offers immersion programs in Creole, Hebrew, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, and Spanish. Houston opened an Arabic-language school this year. California opened their first Vietnamese dual-language program in Westminster. Dual-immersion programs receive support from communities that want their students to retain native languages as well as those that want their students to learn new languages.
