Dual Language Program

Dual Language One-Way

Dual Language refers to a program that provides literacy and content instruction to participating students in two languages, promoting bilingualism, biliteracy, and social-cultural competence in a rich academic setting. 

A One-Way Dual Language Spanish Immersion Program is a developmental bilingual program integrating Emergent Bilingual students in two program languages, English and Spanish. The primary focus of this model is to develop the English language while continuing to develop their skills in Spanish. 

Both program languages are incorporated through all content areas following a 50/50 model employing instructional practices that develop high levels of language and literacy proficiency. This approach emphasizes attaining high levels of academic achievement and developing an appreciation for language and culture with the outcome of reaching bilingualism and biliteracy. 

In Comal ISD, the purpose of the One-Way Dual Language Program is to develop English proficient students prepared to enter English instruction beginning in the 6th grade. Our  goal  is to develop fluency and literacy in both English and Spanish so that students may succeed in the secondary CALP program and be college, career, and military ready. In this educational environment, we provide communicative and academic language development through an interactive, cross-cultural setting. Students are taught by a bilingual certified educator who has full command of both languages.
