How do I oragnise an ESL program? What is an ESL program?

ESL STUDENTS MUST

LEARN IN ENGLISH,

LEARN THROUGH ENGLISH,

LEARN ABOUT ENGLISH!

(Halliday)

ESL students learn best when they are learning in context. This means you are providing a way into the topic via the activities you use.

The most important thing to remember is that English is best learnt in context where a range of meaning making resources are present - this includes English speaking peers. It is less successful withdrawing students who all have language learning needs as you become the main source of language.
