Reasons for Choosing Language Tree Online

Truly Individualized Instruction

We recognize multilingual learners possess varying degrees of proficiency due to previous schooling experiences. Some Students with Interrupted Formal Education (SIFEs) may have no transferable language skills whereas long-term English learners (LTELs) may just need to break through in a few areas. Language Tree Online comprehensive ELD program starts with an in-depth formative assessment based on the latest ELD standards. This allows educators to pinpoint the exact language skills and functions where each student needs more support. Students then work on connected lessons and instructional routines to close identified language skill gaps.

Acculturation and Functional Vocabulary

The importance of acculturation should not be overlooked. Newcomers often face social and emotional hurdles due to a misunderstanding of school norms and expectations. This can make learning and integration difficult. We help newly-arrived students overcome the daunting aspect of entering the American school system by introducing school-related norms and practical tips. American School Culture in our Newcomers program combines cultural knowledge transfer with functional vocabulary builders to help students smoothly transition into their new school environment.
