French Dual Language Immersion

DLI Back to School Night will be held on Aug. 21 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in teachers' classrooms.
 
Bonjour!!
 
Grantsville Elementary is home to a French Dual Immersion Program. Currently we have the program in 1st-3rd Grade. There are approximately 170 students learning the French language. In the next 3 years we anticipate half of our student population will be learning French. We are fortunate to have this program in our school. Students from within our boundaries and from other areas of Tooele County School District have the opportunity to learn French.

 

Utah’s Dual Language Immersion program offers a rich bilingual experience for young learners when their minds are developmentally best able to acquire a second language. 

Instruction is divided between two high quality creative classrooms:

  • One English
  • One in French

Proven Benefits:

  • Second Language Skills
    Students achieve high proficiency in the immersion language.
     
  • Improved Performance on Standardized Tests
    Immersion students perform as well as or better than non-immersion students on standardized tests of English and math administered in English.
     
  • Enhanced Cognitive Skills
    Immersion students typically develop greater cognitive flexibility, demonstrating increased attention control, better memory, and superior problem solving skills as well as an enhanced understanding of their primary language.
     
  • Increased Cultural Sensitivity
    Immersion students are more aware of and show more positive attitudes towards other cultures and an appreciation of other people.
     
  • Long Term Benefits
    Immersion students are better prepared for the global community and job markets where a second language is an asset.
