Bilingual Education vs. English Immersion: Which Is Better for English Language Learners?
The purpose of this study was to determine which model of instruction is better for English Language Learners (ELL), English immersion or bilingual education. Two research articles were selected, compared, and analyzed. One was for English immersion and the other for bilingual education. Results are inconclusive, but it is important for educators to focus more on the quality of instruction rather than the language of instruction.
