How to encourage your ELLs
from By Douglas Magrath
From April 25:
The success of students in acquiring a new language is related to the learning environment.
As I wrote last June
, in addition to classes and activities, the overall learning environment is a factor in retention and student progress. Students need to feel like participants in the program rather than just observers. Each student needs to be more than just a number. Giving encouragement and avoiding hurtful comments go a long way in keeping students on track in their ESL program.
