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 in 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 ELs also struggle in their academic subjects due to language gaps or lack of subject-specific vocabulary.
The Language Tree Online ELD Level 2 program uses a cross-curricular approach to solidify language skills while strengthening academic language and subject matter knowledge. Our program features lessons designed to develop the critical language skills needed to “unpack” content in 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.
