School officials in Fairfax County, Va., recently presented a proposal recommending the expansion of foreign-language immersion programs to all elementary schools in the county within a five-year period. The proposal advocates for a two-way immersion structure that would include 50% native English speakers and 50% non-native speakers, and it would transition schools to a program in which students receive language instruction for one hour a week in addition to another subject.
