Which Language

There are many ways to look at which might be the most useful languages to learn in an immersion context.  Are they the languages most spoken in the world, the ones most spoken in the US, those most commonly used in business around the world, those most commonly used in trade with the US, the ones which allow us to study the past, or the ones that allow us to travel the furthest?

The good news is that being immersed in a foreign language during early childhood does what it does to the brain regardless of which language it is.  Bring on Latvian!

Dear Families, educators, and partners,

In 2020 we announced that the DC Language Immersion Project would close its doors due to lack of resources. However, before completely dissolving the organization, we recently asked a group of local and national educators if they - individually or collectively - would be interested in continuing the work of advocating for multilingual education in the District of Columbia. We are pleased to announce that a few individuals responded yes and volunteered to forge a plan to continue this vital work.

So, we are not closing our doors but we are entering a six-to-twelve-month period of dormancy as we determine the best path forward for the DC Immersion Project.  Thank you for your continued support and please stay tuned for updates.
