Online English Language Development (ELD)

American School Culture: Digital ELD Resources

Free Resource for English Learners

Language Tree Online would like to support our EL educators during this challenging period. To help your middle and high school English learners stay engaged and learning at home, we are pleased to offer your school our American School Culture online module free of charge* through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.

Our American School Culture module brings Newcomer/beginning EL students up to speed quickly on American school norms and expectations. Students learn about school rules, available school resources, behavioral expectations, class participation, extracurricular activities, and fun facts like American holidays and traditions. They will learn critical, school-related vocabulary through interactive activities that accelerate English language acquisition.
