Language is everywhere and it’s surely unavoidable. Homework, tests, socializing and even a quick trip to your local coffee shop will require you to use language. As English is the most common language in America, it’s not rare to be surrounded by English in our daily lives. Transforming thoughts and words from one’s native language to English does not establish overnight. This provides a unique obstacle for many students who lack proficiency in English and are working on learning the language, on top of their regular education. The English Language Learner Program works to ensure that students with less English proficiency have an equal opportunity to succeed.
