Those who know nothing of foreign languages know nothing of their own.

Key points to note
1.
EAL students absorb more of their surroundings than we think.

A "silent period" is normal.
2.
EAL students are capable
of inference. Cognitively, most are very able, so do NOt ignore them.
3.
EAL students need to feel included where possible; a sense of belonging is important to them.
4.
Try to Elicit prior knowledge. Many know more than most teachers presume.
Useful Websites:
Flocabulary, MyMaths, BBC Bite Size, CSF Software, etc.
Useful Websites:
BrainPop, BBC Bite Size, National Geographic, TES, etc.
