Check for discrimination of similar sounding words.  Provide intense, motivating, and frequent instruction.  Build vocabulary from an early age.  Practice listening accuracy,  auditory sequencing, and phonological memory.  Try Fast ForWord program to building skills for reading.

30 Untranslatable Words From Other Languages Illustrated By Anjana Iyer

When something is “lost in translation,” it could have been due to a simple mistake or due to the fact that one language was not quite able to capture the essence of a word's meaning in another language. This conflict is the idea behind New Zealand-based designer Anjana Iyer's “Found in Translation” series of images, which try to explain the meaning behind words in other languages that have no direct equivalent in English.

The Geography of Language

"Over the course of human history, thousands of languages have developed from what was once a much smaller number. How did we end up with so many? And how do we keep track of them all? Alex Gendler explains how linguists group languages into language families, demonstrating how these linguistic trees give us crucial insights into the past."

U.S. Hispanic and Asian populations growing, but for different reasons

Seth Dixon's curator insight, June 27, 10:15 AM

It is often noted that the cultural composition of the United States is undergoing a shift, referred to by some as the "Browning of America."  The story of Asian and Hispanic growth in the United States are occurring simultaneously, which makes many assume that they are growing for the same reasons.  The data clearly shows that this is not the case.

Giselle Figueroa's curator insight, September 26, 9:46 PM

A very interesting fact, because I thought that Hispanic race had grown rather than Asian race in the last few years but I see that not. Another thing that caught my attention was that the Hispanic  population has  growth due to the Hispanic  birth here in U.S and not because they immigrate to U.S. But in the case of the growth of the Asian population, is because they immigrate. I didn't know that, now I am more  informed.

Welcoming Immigrants: Why Empathy Is Smart Economics For Cities

Welcoming Immigrants: Why Empathy Is Smart Economics For Cities | English Language Learners in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Why should a local government care about welcoming immigrants and becoming an actively empathetic institution?

 

Creating an environment that is friendly toward immigrants is both a matter of human decency and smart economics.  A welcoming city is more likely to thrive, thus illustrating the “empathy imperative”—the critical importance of empathy within communities today. A person who is welcoming to another resident shows active empathy—the kind that involves concrete steps on behalf of the “welcomer” to help make the resident’s journey smoother.

 

In this way, the empathy imperative is a powerful economic driver that also makes a city a more vibrant, inclusive, and pleasant place to live.
