We’re excited to announced that add.a.lingua co-founder, Stacey Vanden Bosch, will be giving a presentation on contextual integrity and cross-linguistic connections in primary immersion classrooms at this year’s Brazilian Immersion Conference. Held on September 6 and 7, the conference focuses on effective (bi) literacy instruction for immersion students and will include presentations in English and Portuguese, with simultaneous translation.
We are thrilled to be a part of this conference with so many other language learners and to bring our passion for quality dual language immersion education to Brazil. For a complete listing of speakers, (including psychologist and language acquisition researcher, Dr. Fred Genesee!), see here. We’ve posted the conference details from Beit Yaacov Escola below.
An event will take place every year. One year it will be a full conference with a call for papers inviting many national and international speakers. Then in the other year, a smaller 1 or 1 ½ day event that will follow more of a symposium format, without a call for papers.
This will give us an opportunity to expand our horizons on Immersion, International and Bilingual Education in Brazil on a yearly basis.
