Language Learning Model Glossary of Terms K-5 Two-Way Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Foreign Language in the Elementary School (FLES) 6-12 Languages Other Than English (LOTE)
ILT Language Learning Model Trilingual Education K-12: Students attending International Leadership of Texas will receive academic instruction in English, Spanish, and Chinese. Students in Kindergarten through 5th grade will participate in a dual language program (Spanish/ English) as well as participate in Chinese language development classes through their specials classes (FLES). Students in 6th through 12th will receive daily language development instruction in Spanish and Chinese as part of their academic instructional schedule (LOTE).
Our Model All Content areas are taught in both English and Spanish through our Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Model and in conjunction with our Chinese FLES model.
Guiding Principles of DLI Strand 1: Assessment and Accountability. Strand 2: Curriculum Strand 3: Instruction Strand 4: Staff Quality and Professional Development Strand 5: Program Structure Strand 6: Family and Community Strand 7: Support and Resources
Benefits of Learning Another Language…
Our Model is Research Based (Thomas & Collier, 2002)
What is Two-Way Dual Language Immersion (DLI)? Additive & Enrichment bilingual model Two languages are valued equally Monolingual delivery Teachers provide low-risk, highly supportive learning environment Focus is on biliteracy, bilingualism, and multi-culturalism Our DLI model is a 50/50 model whereas students will receive instruction in all subject areas in both Spanish and English
Five Year Implementation Plan GradeGrade% Spanish% Spanish% English Kinder50 50/50 all subjects/ alternating daily (i.e., AM English/ PM Spanish, then switching the following day to AM Spanish/ PM English) 1 st 50 2nd – 5 th Modified Dual Language Program
Every 6 weeks’ grading period, student’s language levels are assessed to track the development of both the Chinese and Spanish languages (and English if ELL).

Mandarin Chinese K-12 The goal of IL Texas is that our students (starting with us from elementary) be fluent in reading, writing, listening, and speaking Mandarin Chinese. Our objective is for every one of our students to successfully complete Chinese I, Chinese II, Chinese III, and AP Chinese IV or Dual Credit College Chinese I by the end of their 12th grade year.
Language Proficiency Assessment System Student’s language proficiency will be assessed in the following four domains: Listening Speaking Reading Writing
ILTexas Evaluation and Accountability
STANDARDS FOR FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEARNING (ACTFL) Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. The United States must educate students who are linguistically and culturally equipped to communicate successfully in our increasingly more global world. This imperative envisions a future in which ALL students will develop and maintain proficiency in English and another language. In the case of ILT, our kids will be proficient in English and two other languages, Spanish and Chinese. National Standards on Foreign Language Education-American Council on Teaching Foreign Languages
Five C’s Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities—the five C’s of foreign language education.
