Utah Setting a Strong Example for Dual Language Growth

Utah offers an impressive array of dual language immersion programs for their elementary school students.  In addition to classroom instruction in English, their various state supported dual language programs also include instruction in either Mandarin, French, German, Portuguese or Spanish.  The governor of Utah hopes to increase enrollment in these programs to 30,000 students by 2015, setting a strong example for other states to follow.  They currently have 58 dual language immersion programs.  The majority of students attending these programs are native English speakers.
