  • It is vital for teachers to consider the language used in their subject area from an ESL learner's point of view. This informative program helps teachers accommodate ESL learners with real-life classroom examples and practical strategies. Explore how teachers can consider the language demands of their lessons and use non-verbal cues to enhance language comprehension. Learn how language modeling builds learner confidence and how to differentiate between language and content when correcting.
