In New Zealand, an immersion programme is defined as one where the whole curriculum is provided in a language other than English. A 'full immersion' programme uses the language other than English for more than 80 per cent of the time; a 'part immersion programme' for between 50 per cent and 80 per cent. The school environment reflects the culture and conventions of the immersion language. The New Zealand approach to 'immersion' education is partly modelled on developments in Quebec, Canada, which cater for children of English speakers who want their children to communicate fluently in French.
