Title:
Immersion Education
Authors:
McKendry, Eugene
Abstract:
Immersion education, where learners are educated in whole or in a significant part through a language other than their first language, is now firmly established internationally and in Ireland, North and South, as a successful and effective form of education. It aims to develop a high standard of language competence in the immersion language, but must also, and can, ensure at least a similar level of achievement in the first language as that reached by pupils attending monolingual schools.
