Online English Language Development (ELD Level 2)
Bridging the Gap for More Advanced English Learners
Intermediate and Long-Term English Learners (LTELs) in the secondary grades often have strengths some language areas — such as speaking or reading —but weaknesses in others. As a result, learners may experience stalled progress in their path to re-designation, along with diminished academic achievement. Many struggle in their academic subjects due to language gaps or lack of subject-specific vocabulary.
Our approach with more advanced English learners is to solidify foundational English skills, and then layer on academic language and subject matter content. The Language Tree Online ELD Level 2 program features lessons designed to develop the critical language skills needed “unpack” content in subject areas such as Math, Sciences and Social Studies.
ELD Level 2 is an academic year-long program for English learners with two or more years of study. This multi-sensory program features video instruction, interactive quizzes, self-recording and writing exercises.
