“The opportunity of bilingualism is an important gift to give to our students.” The cognitive, cultural, and professional benefits of bilingualism have the potential to broaden learners’ experiences in their careers and academics. In a recent edWebinar, Maya Goodall, Senior Director of EL Curriculum at Lexia Learning, highlighted that 10% of all students in U.S. public schools are emerging bilinguals and emerging multilinguals. Formerly called English Language Learners, students who speak more than one language have demonstrated advantages and awareness of languages, communication skills, memory, decision making, and analytical skills.
The goal of this edWebinar is to provide participants with techniques, strategies, and practical ideas about how to improve their English language learners’ (ELL) pronunciation using pedagogical tools that enhance natural English stress, intonation and rhythm in connected speech.
This edWebinar will focus on the basics of second language acquisition, exploring the theories of Chomsky and Krashen, including learner differences and development.
