    The FLAG Korean program began at Keppel Elementary School in 2007 with support from a three-year Federal Foreign Language Assistance Prgram (FLAP) Grant and expanded to Monte Vista Elementary SChool in 2010. The program focuses on full billingualism and biliteracy in English and Korean. 

    The FLAG Korean program follows a 50/50 dual immersion model in elementary school. Students receive instruction in Korean for 50% of the day and in English for 50% of the day. Korean language is taught both for language acquisition and content instruction.

    Careful consideration is given to the selection and planning of the content areas and themes that are taught in Korean. Dual Immersion classes are taught by fully-credentialed, bilingual teachers who have additional preparation and expertise in teaching Korean.
