Sample text

Studies of students in immersion programmes, where content is learned through the medium of a new language, have shown that students develop high levels of language proficiency and meet (or exceed) expectations for content learning as well (Genesee, 1987; Hoffmann, Chapter 7; Cenoz, Chapter 8; Genesee, Chapter 11, this volume). Learning language through content provides students with opportunities to use language as it functions in the real world: to communicate authentic meanings, for authentic purposes, and to accomplish authentic tasks.

Because there is a strong interaction between cognition and the ability to verbalise thought, complementary language/content teaching has a dual benefit for students being schooled in a second language: as students grow in their ability to verbalise in second language their conceptual understandings, they both strengthen their conceptual understanding and grow in their language proficiency. In language-driven courses and programmes, students learn a second language or third language as a subject, not as the principal vehicle for schooling.
