ESL classes growing in suburban schools
from The Saratogian
The students in Patrice Delehanty's high school classroom sat with desks in a semicircle listening to her explain the process to be used on an upcoming test. They were dressed in everyday American high school apparel, a sweatshirt here, a baseball cap there, even a red-knitted hat in case the spring weather turned cold. The conversation between the students was light with a barb or two tossed at someone seated at another desk. Sometimes the comment was made in English. At other times it was made in another language. Spanish seemed to be the universal default.
