Teachers Struggle To Recreate Language-Rich Classes For English Learners Online

When schools across California canceled in-person classes in the spring, some students lost crucial opportunities to learn and practice their new language – English.

About one-fifth of students in California are learning English as a second language, and most of their classes are only in English. In order to learn to speak, read and write fluently, they need additional language classes and many opportunities to practice speaking and interacting with peers and teachers, which can be difficult remotely.

Researchers and advocates for English learners say during distance learning, schools need to prioritize live instruction and small groups. They also need to work with families in their native languages to support learning at home and provide social-emotional support to ease anxiety and stress caused by the pandemic.

But many researchers, parents and teachers are worried that students learning English are not getting the help or the language instruction they need.

There are more than 2,800 English as a second language learners in the district, according to school officials. Spanish and Albanian are the other dominant languages in the city.

“As an ESL teacher you’re very dramatic, you act things out, you color code, you put things in two different languages sometimes to make sure that students are understanding what you’re saying,” said Pamela Loh, a teacher at Wilby High School.

Students in Waterbury Public Schools are simultaneously learning on the computer in class and at home.

The biggest challenges English learners often face is interpreting the directions, Loh said. So it takes extra effort and one-on-one support to

Essex were ready to rejoice after winning the Bob Willis Trophy – a one-off first-class tournament in the UK due to the impact of Covid-19 – and began spraying alcohol during their celebrations.

However, during the celebrations on the balcony at Lord’s, 12th man Feroze Khushi was photographed recoiling as beer was poured on him.

Alcohol is forbidden to Muslims for religious reasons, leaving Essex admitting the celebrations failed to meet their inclusive values and pledging to do more.

“Essex County Cricket Club prides themselves on their work within multi-diverse communities throughout the county and the surrounding areas,” the country said in a statement.

‘A day at the market’ may be a common English elocution assignment at school, but for Vaishali Waghere, a class XII graduate farmer’s wife from Pimpri Chinchwad whose children study in an English-medium school, this is like stepping into the shoes of Shashi Godbole, essayed by the late Sridevi, in filmmaker Gauri Shinde’s debut English Vinglish (2012).

The 39-year-old housewife has been learning spoken English since the last month through a specially designed online learning course for mothers. “I want to speak English as fluently as I speak Marathi,” said Waghere, who recounts how she would enjoy learning in school and junior college but couldn’t continue her education further.

“I studied in a state-run Marathi-medium school. My children go to a CBSE school. They speak good English. I’d often feel left out of their conversation as I did not know the language. I couldn’t
