How do teachers in a dual-language (Chinese-English) setting describe the strengths and weaknesses of the dual-language classroom?
The Chinese language has been increasingly popular in the United States during the past few years, leading to a handful of Chinese-English dual language schools or programs. However, little research has been done to evaluate the Chinese-English dual language program through teachers' opinions. This capstone investigates the current status of Chinese-English dual language programs in the United States by interviewing two experienced teachers in this field at a public elementary school in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The study reveals both strengths and weakness of dual language program. The research findings not only are useful for school administrators to enhance the dual language program, but also provide a valuable reference for people who are interested in being a dual language teacher.
