B. Overlapping Method

•This method is very useful for students which are still in a very early stadium of speaking and understanding the second language or for very beginners.
•The method considered the main instruction of the topic in the native language first, and the continuing and deeper content discovering in the second language. The revision should always be at the beginning of the lesson in the language in which the lesson will be held.
•The main structure of the delivering of the lessons is 50% in both languages. This method is giving bilingual teachers the chance to support weak students as well as to use higher developed knowledge of advanced students in the second language.
•Based on the fact that content will shortly review always in the lesson language gives every student the chance to absorb the knowledge in both languages.
•This method needs a strong support and partner work between English subject teachers and bilingual subject teachers to develop subject and linguistic skills in both lessons.
