For Hong Kong high school students (n=12,784), late immersion in English as the language of instruction had large negative effects on science, geography, and history achievement. English immersion had small positive effects on English and Chinese achievement. Effects of language of instruction did not vary substantially over the first 3 years of high school. (SK)
