Rose City Park School Informational Meeting for Vietnamese Dual Language Immersion Program

 

“Dual language immersion (DLI) education provides social, cognitive and academic benefits to children and prepares them to be successful in a global society. Portland Public Schools offers free programs in five languages: Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian and Vietnamese. 
Our own Rose City Park Elementary houses the Vietnamese program, which is relatively new and usually has no wait-list. That means families interested in foreign language immersion will have greater odds of enrollment in this program. Native and non-native Vietnamese families looking for a challenging, engaging and highly beneficial language and social program should apply. Attendance at Kinder Connect on Feb. 18 or 26 is mandatory for entering a DLI lottery.”

A Vietnamese family in the Overlook neighborhood with two young kids in the Vietnamese DLI program is happy to answer questions, open to forming study/play groups, and provide general support for families interested. Please contact Sarah-Truclinh Tran (st.tran@gmail.com) if you’d like to chat about the Vietnamese program with a family.”
