Discover Dual Language
The vision of CFBISD's Dual Language Program is to develop students who possess strong bilingual, biliterate, academic, and cross-cultural competencies that enable them to contribute effectively to a global society.
The Discover Dual Language program opens doors to a new world of possibilities! As Ludwig Wittgenstain said, "The limits of my language mean the limits of my world!" Scholars in our Discover Dual Language are exposed to different cultures through the new language experience. Scholars are immersed in a language-rich environment during the day which expands their horizon and encourages resiliency. This unique experience gives scholars the opportunity to forge lasting bonds with their "Language Partners" and learn in a caring environment where differences are celebrated while maintaining a common purpose. Learning another language is a passport to the world!
