I’ve been interested in languages since 3rd grade when I started taking Spanish language classes. In 7th grade I switched my focus to the French language and after 3 years of French I decided to spend a year abroad in Belgium to completely immerse myself in the French language and culture. That experience made me curious about the way in which languages are learned and how children learn them with more ease and success than adults. To combine my love of languages and education, I chose to do a 4 month project on immersion schooling in the hopes of making a useful guide for others to learn about the idea.
