The Language Immersion Life
This new book was published to wide acclaim as a "most needed" book in immersion education. Most texts on language immersion are written for educators but this book was written for parents, families, or anyone else needing an introduction to this model. The book takes you through the entire K-12 journey and helps administrators and school boards--as well as families--to understand what investment in this style of education entails.
