I taught transitional bilingual students in two different California school districts for 24 years. The Fontana Unified School District and the Baldwin Park Unified School District. In the early years, the majority of my students at the elementary and middle school levels were classified as transitional bilingual students. Their native or home language was Spanish, but their school language was English. One of the main lessons I learned as a teacher of native Spanish speakers was only to use Spanish when needing to clarify concepts. Students were encouraged to read, write, speak, and think in English at all times. By the end of the school year, many students were communicating effectively in English and progressing in their understanding of English vocabulary and grammar. As with all new learning, mastering the concepts takes dedicated practice and commitment.
1) In between lessons, students should listen to television in English. They should listen to ads, cartoons, and the news. Students should also be familiar with the news in Spanish. It is also important for the students to engage in conversations with English speakers. This provides valuable practice and helps to improve their pronunciation of English words. 2) After each lesson, students will be assigned a story to write using the English vocabulary words from that lesson.
1) English-Spanish Dictionary. 2) Spanish-English Dictionary.
Learner progress will be assessed based on class participation, completion of classwork, and completion of homework assignments.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
