Bilingual Multicultural Education


Albuquerque Bilingual Academy: Bilingual Multicultural Education Program (BMEP) 

“Bilingual education involves teaching academic content in two languages.” 

“In a Two-Way Bilingual Immersion program, children prepare for a global future. They achieve comprehensive fluency and literacy in two languages. Their bilingualism allows them to communicate with ease in multiple countries.”  “The result is superior academic performance, in two languages. Bilingualism not only enhances cognitive development, it also increases multicultural understanding and expands educational and professional prospects.”
