Any school will be able to help your child learn English and your local school board or the principal at your local school will be able to help you find the information you need to make a good decision about which school to send your child.
Your child’s teacher will evaluate how well your child uses English at the beginning of the school year. Assessing your child’s English language level is important. It helps your child’s teachers know the best way to teach your child English. Teachers may use one or more tests when your child arrives at school to help them know your child’s language level.
You can participate in events or activities to make learning another language fun and encourage your child to share in activities with English speaking children.
Children learn best when their schooling is uninterrupted. Long absences from school will increase the time it takes for your child to learn English. If your child is going to be absent due to an illness or family travel, talk to the teacher for ways to help your child keep up with school work while he or she is away from school.
