English Language Learners
English Language Learners (ELL): refers to students whose primary language is not English; however, they are enrolled in an English speaking school. They are a number of programs offered to facilitate learning for ELL students. We have a dedicated Educational Assistant who provides special help on a scheduled and as needed basis.
Kurzweil Reader: Gives students the opportunity to listen to books and follow along. This can help students comprehend the material.
Rosetta Stone: is a fast and easy way to get your ELL students speaking, reading, writing and understanding English. Because Rosetta Stone is immersion-based, it can be integrated into bilingual, dual immersion or limited English proficiency programs.
Rosetta Stone stands apart because it focuses on ELL learners’ innate strengths. We all rely on our visual sense to understand the world, and that’s precisely where Rosetta Stone starts. It moves students through a carefully structured sequence of pictures, encouraging them to associate images they understand with words that they don’t.
Our method works because it’s:
- visually engaging
With Rosetta Stone, your ELL students will never:
- see lists of words
Rosetta Stone gives students learning English the advantage of being immersed in the language from the moment they start using the program.
