Multi Language Learners

Dual Language (Spanish)

  • Dual language programs include both native English speakers and English Language Learners. The students learn in both English and their home language. In most dual language programs, the students get half of their instruction in their home language and the other half in English.
  • The goal of the program is for students to learn how to speak, read, understand, and write in two languages, and also learn about and appreciate other culture.
  •  

English as a New Language

  • In an English as a New Language (ENL) program teachers work with the students to build their speaking, writing, reading and listening skills in English using supports in the students’ home language. The goal of the program is to support students as they become capable in English. There are two types of English as a New Language programs:
    • Integrated ENL: Students receive core content area areas (English Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and/or Mathematics) and English language development instruction including home language supports and appropriate ELL scaffolds.
    • Stand-alone ENL: Students receive English language development instruction taught by a New York State certified ESOL teacher in order to acquire the English language needed for success in core content areas (English Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and/or Mathematics).
