A three-day workshop—Immersion A-Z: Essential Basics for Language  
Immersion Programs—will be held June 29 to July 1 at the University of  
Arizona, College of Education Building in Tucson, Arizona for those  
planning and starting immersion programs.

The workshop provides hands-on experience on language immersion  
methods, the proven effective way of transmitting language knowledge  
from one generation to the next in a variety of contexts including at  
home, in the community, at day care centers, at preschool and head  
start and at schools.

“Participants will learn how to design and implement immersion  
teaching, how to make long range plans for language programs, how to  
create language activities, how to produce fun and useful materials  
for language learning, and how to assess the effectiveness of the  
language immersion program,” according to a press release.

The registration deadline is April 15 and forms are available online  
through the Indigenous Language Institute.
