Abstract : The writers have examined the opinions of English-speaking and French-speaking teachers about the traditional program of English language instruction with French as a second language and an innovative program involving French immersion. Both French and English teachers agree with the traditional program provides English children with a firm base in English--but not in French--language arts and in content subjects, and with a sensitivity to their own--but not to the other group's--cultural heritage. The French-speaking teachers generally view the immersion programs favorably; but the English-speaking teachers view them unfavorably. Some implications of these findings are presented. (Author)
