We trust you had a fantastic summer and are enjoying the back to school fun that always happens in late August and early September. We wanted to take a moment and share with you some details about an upcoming series on our blog.
We’ve reached out to add.a.lingua partner schools and asked several immersion families –
families just like yours – to share their journey in immersion education with us over the coming school year. These families will share the reasons they were driven to enroll their child in this type of education. They may share how they fielded questions from skeptical friends, and how the program has impacted their family. Other families may share about struggles that they’ve had along the way, and the importance of persevering.
Some of these families have enrolled children in Mandarin Chinese immersion, and some have enrolled children in Spanish. Some are new families; some are immersion veterans. They are heritage speakers of the immersion language; they are English dominant speakers. They live in Michigan; they live in the midwest. All of them, though, have found an add.a.lingua program to be a formative experience in the lives of their child(ren).
We encourage you to join us this year – as we begin introducing each of our #DLIPARENT blogger families via podcast over the next several weeks. We believe you’ll find a piece of at least one story that connects to yours. And we hope you’ll be inspired by these parents to share your story with those around you!
