This report examines students’ attitudes, through their school achievement in Spanish and English and through their responses to questionnaires, toward becoming bilingual in the Amigos two-way immersion program. Many students in grades 4-8 understand the importance of and enjoy becoming bilingual. Through exposure to two cultures, many have also developed a sense of biculturality. This report extends earlier studies of the Amigos Program. 1998. (RR 3). (20 pp).
