English Language Learners

Children who are learning the English language have two immediate challenges. They are learning from someone who does not speak their language, and they are tackling a language that is unpredictable and full of contradictions. Learning English becomes attainable when we employ images that allow students to recognize each word along with what that word means.

What is hard for them & why they struggle

We often speak of how English-speaking children differ greatly in their learning styles, so imagine how difficult it is for English language learners who are strongly visual to learn English from the ground up. The best window for learning a language is the 2-4 age range, but it is definitely possible to learn with appropriate materials and consistent learning for your child.

How we can help

306 SnapWords Teaching Cards

Images and body movement will be effective for children learning English. Images and movement transcend speech and language as universal languages. All our learning resources teach with visuals and body movement. Historically, children who are learning English benefit tremendously from using SnapWords® to gain an essential vocabulary. One of our ELL teacher customers reports that her students are learning sight words more rapidly than English speaking students in the regular classroom.
