English Language Learners

Academic English takes 7+ years to learn. You don’t have that kind of time.

Why do English Language Learners struggle with English?

Students with limited or no English speaking proficiency need instruction in recognizing and distinguishing the sounds of English as compared or contrasted with sounds in their native language.

Instruction for ELLs in oral language, knowledge, skills, and abilities must be intensive and extensive.

Oral proficiency in English (including oral vocabulary, grammar and listening comprehension) is critical for ELLs to develop proficiency in text level English reading comprehension.
