Scott Benedict teaching a story
Scott Benedict guiding a student actor

Never before have students loved language classes so much.


Instead of grammar drills and worksheets, they're engaged in the language each and every day, comprehending the language, and acquiring it effortlessly as you use the language in context every day.


And what's best of all, class is personalized to each and every student, making all the difference.

Immediate Immersion is an innovative CI curriculum focused on delivering the most frequent vocabulary and structures integrated with culture at every level.

Why did I create Immediate Immersion?

I created the Immediate Immersion curriculum because what I wanted as a teacher and what my students needed to acquire language more effectively didn't exist.


Yes, there were other comprehension-based curricula out there, but some were based on a traditional textbook, others had too many parts that were complicated to follow, and none of them contained everything you needed to teach your students throughout the year without buying add-ons.

I wanted a simple, easy-to-implement, all-in-one curriculum that was based on high-frequency vocabulary.

So I sat down and created a simple, easy-to-implement, all-in-one solution.


Immediate Immersion has everything you need to start teaching with comprehensible input tomorrow!


Immediate Immersion includes a comprehensive teacher's manual with detailed instructions and story scripts, customizable lesson slides to lead you and your students through an effective lesson, cultural units, homework/classwork activities that focus on comprehension, not filling in blanks or filling in charts, and proficiency-based assessments focusing on listening and reading comprehension, speaking, and writing.

Get your LIFE back!

Spend less time planning lessons, less time creating engaging stories, and more time interacting with your students in the target language so you, too, can have your life back.


Get your students engaged in the language from day 1, get to know your students through the language, master the Sweet 16 before focusing on additional high-frequency vocabulary.


All of this is possible with Immediate Immersion!

What our customers say...

"This is a fantastic framework..."

"Your teacher notes are so good for the first story."

I LOVE how deliberate the rules and expectations are taught."

“This is a fantastic framework for switching over to CI methods after 15 years of teaching. I appreciate having so many resources and also being able to modify materials.”

"Your teacher notes are so good for the first story. What a big help! I wrote them out on large index cards and numbered them and then I realized that I didn't need them too much once I got going."

"I LOVE how deliberate the rules and expectations are taught. I have absolutely no behavior issues this year. :0 Anyway, I'm having the best year ever. Thanks to you!"

“I love this curriculum. Everything is ready to use and each activity has clear explanations..."

"The Immediate Immersion materials are SOOOO helpful!"

"My next-door colega is noticing how happy-looking my students are..."

“I love this curriculum. Everything is ready to use and each activity has clear explanations, which make it really easy to implement in class even if you are new to CI methods. I also love that it is easy to modify to the teacher´s needs. It has lots of resources, even homework (if you need to use it) and assessments. I recommend buying it with the webversity course.”

"The Immediate Immersion materials are SOOOO helpful! This is what I have needed for 3 years. I work so much better when I can follow a detailed program first, then maybe branch out once I get comfortable. This is making all the things you have told me in the past and other things I've read/watched make so much more sense. I'm very excited about it!"

"My next-door colega is noticing how happy-looking my students are leaving/coming and how her's are beginning to "sag"- they're using the book. She's wishing there was a Level 2 ready to buy! She's very interested in your program. Personally- I can't wait til there's a level 3! That's the class I always have problems with the most."

""I'm a big fan of Scott Benedict's Immediate Immersion curriculum."

“This is a great buy! I am impressed with how complete and organized the materials are."

""By the way, 2 weeks into using this program...oh, my lord what a difference!"

"I'm a big fan of Scott Benedict's Immediate Immersion curriculum. I used a couple other curricula that were good, but I had to supplement a lot to make it work for my community of MS kids who have a firm idea of how "hard" and "much work" language class should be. Immediate Immersion is very affordable bc it's 100% digital and licensed per teacher not per pupil. It includes lesson plans, PPT and Keynote slides you can use right away (such a time saver), CI-supported pre-made homework activities, cultural lessons and best of all lots of assessments that use standards-based grading. "

“This is a great buy! I am impressed with how complete and organized the materials are. They provide all the files ready to use (powerpoints, homework, lesson plans, year-long plans etc.) and the teachers guide is long, detailed and comes with excellent descriptions of CI techniques and creative ideas for class. Not only do I think this is a great resource for a teacher trying to start using CI, I think it’s an excellent resource for experienced teachers to have and can be used by anyone because it is so clear and complete. I will be recommending this to my department head!”

"By the way, 2 weeks into using this program...oh, my lord what a difference! The first week's student reflection was very rewarding -- almost universal acclaim (a few of the native speakers and "academic" students didn't like the repetition, but 95% said it was 100% better and many said they felt they had learned more in one week than all last semester. My lost students [audio visual learners!] have started to wake up and blossom. I feel guilty now for having ripped them off!) Thank you, thank you, thank you! I still have a bit to go so as to become really good at this, but, as you said, even a bad day with TPRS is better than a good day with that one-dimensional crap I was doing before!"

Immediate Immersion contains 24 lessons based on Terry Waltz’s Super Verbs and Mike Peto’s Sweet 16 Verbs along with high-frequency vocabulary to maximize efficiency in providing comprehensible input to students.

All Immediate Immersion curricula start off by using the language to get to know students and build relationships.

We then move on to working with the Super Verbs and the Sweet 16 increasing the complexity with each level.


We believe that basing a curriculum on these essential verbs gives all students a solid foundation on which to grow their proficiency.


And from there, we add additional high-frequency vocabulary to round out the curriculum.


We know from experience that by teaching less, the students learn so much more, remembering nearly everything they learned even after long breaks. We also know from experience, that when we teach too much, students remember very little.

INNOVATIVE.

INNOVATIVE.

Immediate Immersion™ is an innovative CI text that utilizes PowerPoint® or Keynote® to project the student-lesson slides on your screen or SMART Board getting students’ noses out of the book and immersed in language acquisition. As teachers we know that students don’t acquire a language by reading about it. Students acquire language by being immersed in the language and making meaning of what they experience within context. By taking the lessons out of the book, Immediate Immersion™ gets students to actively engage in language maximizing acquisition.



VERSATILE.

VERSATILE.

Immediate Immersion™ is a versatile CI text that adapts to the traditional, standard-block, or 4×4-block schedules. Also because of the PowerPoint® or Keynote® format, you can rearrange lesson components to suit your class’ needs. Because of the nature of the Immediate Immersion™ format, it is extremely adaptable to a wide variety of schedules and classroom settings. Block schedule one day and traditional the next? No problem. Assembly, fire drill, minimum day? No problem. Immediate Immersion™ adapts to the way you work, the way your students learn,and fits within the time frames you do.

CUSTOMIZABLE.

CUSTOMIZABLE.

Immediate Immersion™ is a customizable CI text that allows you to change, add, or remove specific lesson components to accommodate a modified schedule, personal interests, student interests, or to address your class’ specific needs. With traditional textbooks, you’re locked into the lessons, the vocabulary, the structures, the culture the textbook publishers want you to teach. It takes a lot of work to work around the restrictions and limitations of traditional textbooks. With Immediate Immersion’s innovative PowerPoint®/Keynote® format, you are in control. Don’t like the vocabulary? Change it. Have a great lesson you want to use? Add it. Don’t like a particular activity? Remove it. Immediate Immersion™ is meant to be customized and personalized to the needs of you, your classroom, and your students. Now that’s differentiated instruction.

RELEVANT.

RELEVANT.

Immediate Immersion™ is a relevant CI text that concentrates on the most frequent vocabulary, structures, and culture paired with a high-level of student personalization that invigorates, engages, and immerses students in the language. Students want to learn. They want to make connections. And they are more savvy than ever before. They’re no longer happy just sitting in the classroom and learning what the teacher teaches. They want to know how what they are learning is relevant to them and the world that they live in now. By taking the time to get to know your students and personalizing the language to make it more relevant to them, students will be able to make the connections that make learning a language more than a class, and become life-long second-language speakers.

FAQs

If you have a question we haven’t answered, please contact us right away!



Does Immediate Immersion have a scope and sequence?

Not exactly! A scope and sequence not only tells you what will be taught but also when. We know that students don’t always learn within a specific time frame and so we’ve adopted a Guaranteed Curriculum model for Immediate Immersion.    


A Guaranteed Curriculum is what will be taught at a given level without regard to a specific time frame. We believe it’s much more realistic as it takes actual students into account and allows for teachers to move on when they believe their students are ready and not because a specific date on the calendar has passed.

What themes are covered by Immediate Immersion?

Immediate Immersion™ does not use the thematic model in its curriculum. Instead we’ve adopted prioritizing vocabulary, structures, and culture based on the highest frequency in modern spoken and written language. Many theme-related vocabulary will be presented, but not organized thematically.

How is Immediate Immersion delivered?

Immediate Immersion is a completely digital curriculum. Except for the teacher’s manual, all components will be delivered as Google Docs. This will allow you to not only display and print out* from your computer but also customize it to the needs of your students. The teacher’s manual will be available as a PDF file.    


*You may print out the teacher’s manual for your personal use, but may not share it with other teachers. Each teacher must have their own license (discounts available for multiple licenses within the same school/district). Student readings, assessments, and homework may be printed as needed for each student under one teacher's license. These may not be shared among students of different teachers. Each teacher must have their own license.

How long does it take to teach each lesson?

Each lesson takes a week to two weeks based on daily classes of 45-60 minutes each.    


We do not recommend hurrying through the curriculum. Teach at the pace of your students and they will excel.

Does Immediate Immersion have everything I need?

For the most part, yes it does. It contains your teacher’s manual, lesson slides, culture, assessments, and listening/reading activities for class or homework.    


You will need to purchase or find on YouTube or other sources music (we highly recommend Sr. Wooly for Spanish teachers).    


We also recommend that you teach two class novels per level. We highly recommend comprehensible readers available at MiraCanion.com, FluencyMatters.com, TPRSbooks.com, and BryceHedstrom.com.

For what ages is Immediate Immersion appropriate?

Immediate Immersion was created with middle and high school in mind. It has been taught from 6th grade through 12th grade.  


We do not recommend Immediate Immersion for elementary students.

What grammar is taught in Immediate Immersion?

There are no explicit grammar lessons in Immediate Immersion. Based on research, we know that grammar is best learned in context as students work to understand the meaning of language rather than focus on the form.    


Although not taught explicitly, level one focuses on present and past tense, level two continues this focus with differentiation between the preterit and imperfect tenses, and level three moves on to future, conditional, and simple subjunctive.
