How do bilingual immersion programs affect students?

Cronkite News/Arizona PBS would like to know what you have noticed about two-way bilingual immersion programs and their effects.

According to the Center for Applied Linguistics, Arizona has seven out of the 458 two-way bilingual immersion programs in the United States. These programs teach a range of academic topics in two different languages, exposing native speakers of each language to a bilingual environment.

Cronkite News/Arizona PBS wants to know about your experience with two-way bilingual immersion programs. Have you, or someone you know, taught or learned in a two-way bilingual immersion program? What should we know about bilingual education?
