The Background Breakdown: The Difference in Oral Language for Monolinguals and Emergent Bilinguals
Oral language is the cornerstone of literacy for Emergent Bilingual students. Research shows that opportunities for speaking practice in the classroom lead to better literacy outcomes long term. Understanding the foundational oral language differences monolingual and Emergent Bilingual students bring to the classroom allows teachers to better differentiate instruction for literacy success.
Lexia® English creates a personalized learning path for each student and offers ample speaking practice with non-judgmental feedback to increase speaking confidence. When Emergent Bilinguals feel empowered to speak English, they’re more likely to engage with their teachers and classmates, leading to deeper English language fluency and literacy.
