Are a few weekly Spanish lessons just as effective as an immersion program?

A few preschools offer 1- 2 hours of Spanish lessons per week. These schools have language goals for students to learn Spanish vocabulary and familiar phrases. Girasol Dual Language Preschool is different because its goal is to teach children to be bilingual and bi-literate.  Therefore, Spanish is spoken most of the school day.  We provide your child with abundant opportunities to be exposed to the Spanish language, Spanish literature and practice daily routines and conversations in Spanish.  Students in our program will learn the Spanish language through real world applications of listening to and participating in conversations, play, and music and learning new words and phrases in context. This is the most natural way how children learn to speak and understand language. It is how they learned their native language.
