Will Full Immersion Delay English Reading?

Here is a link to a great Q&A from our friends at –logo.

“Hello. My 5 yr old attends a full immersion language school and is in the Spanish program. We practice reading English frequently at home, but I am concerned that she is not ‘catching on’ to reading English fast enough. Also, both my husband and I are monolingual. Is it a bad idea for her to be in a full immersion school when we are not able to help her in Spanish? Do most children really ‘catch up’ to their native language in reading in about 3rd grade? I am concerned that she may not be reading in English or Spanish by 3rd grade. Thanks!”
