I teach EAL (English as an Additional Language) students in a secondary school. Our students come from all over the world. Some arrive as political refugees and some arrive as financial refugees. All live in extremely difficult and poor conditions here. I aim to create safe and secure learning environment for them but also encourage them to settle down to their new learning environment as quickly as possible. The quicker is the better...I know there are many teachers also teaching the new arrivals. If you want to share your experiences, please write to me and I will publish them on my blog.
