How Language Immersion Programs In Schools Boost Cultural Awareness (Honolulu Civil Beat)

Maryknoll School
Mahalo to Honolulu Civil Beat & journalist Catherine Toth Fox for the opportunity to share the success of our Mandarin Immersion Program since its inception in 2017.

Fox writes, "There are a lot of benefits to being able to speak multiple languages, from brain development to increased cultural awareness. Dual-language immersion programs can also help minimize the achievement gap for non-native English speakers; these students can learn math and science, for example, in their native language instead of struggling within English-only curriculum."
