Our new Dual Language Learner (DLL) video series highlights the benefits of bilingual education in the early years and the ways that investing in teacher development and training can support the nearly 60% of California kids age five and under who are learning two (or more) languages at the same time, or are learning a second language while continuing to develop their home language.
WATCH & SHARE! Start with our video, “The Benefits of Dual Language Programs for Early Learners” which amplifies the voice of parents who are raising DLLs and highlights for all parents the benefits of enrolling their children in dual language programs in the earliest years.
We encourage you to explore our entire series by visiting our new DLL playlist on YouTube.
