Dual Chinese and English language immersion programs, such as that of the Chinese American International School in San Francisco, are seeing increasing enrollment among non-Asian students. The growth is seen as part of a nationwide trend in response to China's rise as an economic power. "The beauty of immersion programs, whether they're partial or full, is that students spend a considerable amount of time hearing the language and develop it and use it," says ACTFL's Director of Education Marty Abbott.
