I wish I could work there - I think there is also a Russian and a Spanish Immersion program in Portland Public Schools.

There is no doubt that starting young is the key to successful language learning. It is fantastic to see this kind of immersion so early on. If only this kind of opportunity were available in more schools.

Wow---I'm still in shock to see non-Japanese students/teachers speaking and singing in Japanese! How interesting! I wonder: would I have been different person today if I myself were educated in a language-immersion school environment. Without ever knowing, I already know the answer. This is an amazing time for both students and teachers, and I only wish that I am challenged as a teacher in such a way.
