Will there be an elementary version of Immediate Immersion™?

Yes. We have an elementary version planed. If you’re an elementary teacher, WE NEED YOU!! Please contact us if you’d like to help!

Do you have a scope and sequence?

Not exactly! A scope and sequence not only tells you what will be taught, but also when. We know that students don’t always learn within a specific time frame and so we’ve adopted a Guaranteed Curriculum model for Immediate Immersion™. Read what a Guaranteed Curriculum is and what ours looks like for Spanish 1. Spanish 2, German 1, and French 1 Guaranteed Curricula are coming soon.

What themes are covered in Immediate Immersion™?

Immediate Immersion™ does not use the thematic model in its curriculum. Instead we’ve adopted prioritizing vocabulary, structures, and culture based on the highest frequency in modern spoken and written language. Many theme-related vocabulary will be presented, but not organized thematically.

How is Immediate Immersion™ delivered?

Immediate Immersion™ is a completely digital curriculum. Except for the student-lesson slides, all components will be delivered in the ubiquitous PDF format. This will allow you to not only display and print out* from your computer, but also display on your tablet, your phone, Kindle®, or Nook®. The student-lesson slides will be available in either editable PowerPoint® or Keynote® files.

*You may print out the teacher’s manual for your personal use, but may not share it with other teachers. Each teacher must have their own license (discounts available for multiple licenses within the same school/district). Student readings, assessments, and homework may be printed as needed for each student under one teacher license. These may not be shared among students of different teachers. Each teacher must have their own license.

Can I download a free example?
