Why it's a school's problem when a parent doesn't speak English

Why it's a school's problem when a parent doesn't speak English | ELT Articles Worth Reading (mostly ELT) | Scoop.it
While the number of students growing up in families who don’t speak English is increasing in the suburbs, the schools aren’t always as equipped as their urban counterparts to meet the demands of a more diverse student body.

A new Center for American Progress report calls on schools to provide English language instruction not only to the children they serve, but to the parents of those students as well.

“There are a lot of communities that are getting influxes of immigrants who have never had i

New research from Lancaster University shows that those who can speak two or more languages view the world differently depending on the language they use.

Julia Heisler's curator insight, May 1, 12:58 PM

This article depicts how the benefits of being bilingual are well known: the ability to understand new cultures, express yourself in different ways, as well as giving the brain a great cognitive workout. New research from Lancaster University now shows that those who can speak two or more languages can also see the world differently depending on the language they are using. Linguists there took a group of German and English speakers- some bilingual, other monolingual- and tested their reactions to certain images. The results were fascinating. They found that German speakers are more "holistic" in their approach to seeing and describing the world. English speakers focus far more on the action and very little on the goal of that action. This relates to international relations because it describes the languages of the world.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 8, 9:49 PM

It can. Deconstructing meaning is a complex process that involves more than univocal meanings.
