Students at Logos spend half of their day in English and half of their day in Spanish regardless of their first language. Our goal is to have balanced classrooms so students can learn from each other. This promotes cross-cultural connection and transforms our community one student at a time.
The ability to understand and speak more than one language is not the only benefit of immersion education. Research shows that students gain additional cognitive, academic and employment benefits. Immersion programs are the fastest growing and most effective type of foreign language program currently available in US schools (Met, 1998). Students in immersion programs acquire their second language naturally, in much the same way as they acquired their first language. Young children tend to absorb a language through massive amounts of input and exposure. They do not learn by translating between Spanish and English; rather they begin to think in Spanish, and then read, write and speak in Spanish as well.
