Chinese Immersion Program

Is your goal for your child to learn a second language in a formal setting? There are two ways to approach that goal.   You can have your child take daily or weekly classes in a second language or you can enroll your child in an immersion program. The main difference between an immersion setting and a foreign language class is the approach to second language learning.  In an immersion program like the Chinese immersion program at Potomac Elementary, language is a method for teaching the content rather than the subject of instruction. Montgomery County offers several excellent programs for families who want their children to learn a second language through an immersion program rather than just in a language class, and the Chinese immersion program at Potomac Elementary is certainly one of the best.
