our approach

As former dual language immersion educators and school leaders in dual language immersion programs, we understand that starting and growing successful programs can be complex and challenging. We founded addalingua to put our professional experience to work by developing resources that help schools:

  • promote a dual language-ready school culture
  • find and develop proficient teachers
  • educate and empower the school community
  • ensure students achieve academically in two languages while becoming culturally competent 
But, quality resources alone are not enough. To make sure they contribute to addalingua’s core purpose:
to inspire global empathy through education in two languages, we find sold out leaders wanting more for their English-learner and English dominant students than what traditional education provides. By forming partnerships with such school leaders and their teams, we launch and grow addalingua programs, believing that “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Hellen Keller.
