Spanish Dual Immersion Program
Submitted By Karen Mangon
Burbank Elementary in Hayward will be holding a parent meeting for the Spanish Dual Immersion Program on Wednesday, Feb. 27, at 7 p.m. in the elementary school. Burbank's Dual Language Immersion Program brings together native English speakers and native Spanish speakers in a unique opportunity to learn both languages.
Students are taught all in Spanish for approximately half of the day and all in English for the remainder of the day. Interactive lessons encourage students from both language groups to help each other to understand, speak, read and write one another's language.
Parents interested in enrolling their child in the Dual Language Immersion program should contact Sandra Escobedo, principal of Burbank Elementary School at (510) 293-8568 to reserve a space.
