What Does Research Tell Us About DL Programs?
Can students really learn as much English in DL programs as students in English-only programs?
How can we explain the finding which shows that students in DL programs do just as well in English as students in English-only programs even though they have less exposure to English?
Do DL students attain the same levels of achievement in academic subjects as students in all-English programs?
Are DL programs suitable for students with special learning challenges?
