Languages involved include Arabic, Cantonese, Chinese, French, Japanese, Korean, Navajo, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

Information is given by State; brief summary information is listed by district and school. Each listing includes program name; bibliographic information, with telephone numbers; grade levels served; target language used; student selection criteria; recruitment procedures; program materials used, size, and objectives; ethnic statistics; and funding sources. Each listing also includes instructional design and program staffing information, a program evaluation, and community support and viewpoint. The instructional design section offers detailed information on how languages are used in the classes by subject, instructional grouping, program staffing, and computer usage. The evaluation lists components, procedures, and evaluation instruments used. Community support and viewpoint includes parent involvement, community and School Board response to program, advice for starting a program, and the most important feature in the program.
