When it comes to providing the best possible ESL education, it's important to take a comprehensive approach to learning. The last thing you want to do is provide a student with the tools he needs to understand the English language, and then forget to provide a structured environment for continuous growth.
When it comes to teaching English to younger students, it's important to consider the family dynamic. If a student is currently living in a home where a language other than English is spoken, it's a good idea to involve parents, family members and peers in the curriculum. While the native language should remain a large part of social and cultural development, it is still important to practice and use the English skills learned in a structured learning environment.
Some public ESL programs actually offer classes for students and parents. These classes provide families with a chance to learn the language together in a safe and nurturing environment. Parents reap the benefits of observing their children in their educational environments, and the development of English skills helps to bring families closer together with newfound communication skills. If public schools in your area don't provide adult education or family education programs, you might want to check with your state Department of Education. The Department of Education should be able to provide you with a listing for free or low cost classes in your area.
