Le programme Dual Language qui vient de démarrer dans le Queens PS 151 offre vraiment de bonnes conditions d'apprentissage. 20 élèves dans la classe, une maîtresse compétente et dynamique, les enfants devraient progresser à grands pas. Je suis vraiment rassurée et contente que des programmes dans ce genre existent. Il faut les encourager.
