Are you a teacher, administrator, or parent involved in bilingual or dual-language education?  What questions do you need answered?  Please email me at info@elsaberenterprises.com with your question and we will work to answer you.

Here are some questions that we regularly come across when visiting dual-language schools:
  • Should my students read the same book in both languages?  To answer this question, I am going to refer you to Melanie's answer over at Multilingual Mania.  I couldn't have said it better myself!  
  • Should I do guided reading in Spanish or in English?  I wrote about this dilemma on this post.


  1. What guided reading levels do you expect students to be at throughout the year in first grade specifically?

  2. What advice you give a teacher who will be in a dual language for the first time? What materials do you believe I should purchase in order to maximize the potential of my students?

  3. Does a teacher need to be fully bilingual in order to teach a dual language program or is an advanced understanding of the second language valid?
