What strategies can teachers use to accommodate for students with English as their second language? This paper will look into finding answers for these big questions. Glass and Selinker (2001, p. 1) describe the study of second language acquisition as “the study of how languages are learned”. Dictionary.com defines bilingualism as “the ability to speak two languages fluently”. The Issue There seems to be many advantages to learning a second language, however these advantages are normally mentioned in situations where children grow up, immersed in bilingual households from an early age.
It is differing from Key Stage 1 in each country within the UK (Scotland and Northern Ireland) and is based on the concept of learning through play rather than through formal learning. Play has been shown to be an important part for children’s early learning. In Welsh and English schools, the Foundation Curriculum runs from the ages 3 to 5 years and is thus used in Reception classes and in nurseries. The Early Years Foundation Stage was introduced in England in 2008 and it sets out one standard framework for learning, development and care for all children from birth to the end of Reception year. In Scotland, the curriculum is focused around the documents called ‘Curriculum for Excellence.’ This document contains the information concerning the curriculum for 3-18 years olds.
Although some children will develop normal speech and language skills without treatment by the time they enter school, it is important to identify those who will not. Many people falsely believe that speech-language treatment cannot and should not begin until a child begins to talk. Yet, research has shown that children know a great deal about their language even before the first word is said. For example, children can distinguish between their native language and a foreign language, use different nonverbal utterances to express different needs, and imitate different patterns of speech through
The young native Indians are less likely to speak Navajo language because of the school they attend and the Navajo language’s old-fashioned style. The majority of young Navajo are supposed to have English as their first language and have few knowledge of the Navajo language. However, it is possible that people should consider Navajo as their first language but have a low proficiency in English. The enforcement of bilingual education can eliminate the embarrass situations. In order to fulfill the Immersion Program, schools should put students who are already linguistically well-developed in their first language, and immerse them in the different language group, with teaching subjects in the other language.
We also have core studies, which are run by HLTA in the learning support department. Core studies is for students that are below the national standard for their year, the students that have core studies lessons are not removed from their timetabled English lessons but are removed from their Modem Foreign Language lesson to undertake addition Literacy lessons.

This derrived from the Children's Act 2006 and Every Child Matters agenda. Within the early years framework, children's learning is managed through adults working alongside the children, to encourage language, written and maths development. The Early years provision in England is seen as the foundation curriculum, it supports 3 to 5 years olds to understand the concepts of learning.

The prop. requires all public schools to be taught in English. Parents may waive this requirement for their children if they prove their child can fluently speak English, has special needs, or if they convince the school board that their child will learn English faster through a different program than the required class. The proposition provides initial short-term placement, averaging around one year, in intensive sheltered English immersion programs for children that cannot fluently speak or comprehend English. The proposition is allowing $50 million per year funding English instruction for individuals pledging to provide personal English tutoring to children in their community.

The Early Years Foundation stage was revised in England in September 2012, this was to set out one standard framework for learning, development and care for all children from birth until the children reach the age of end of Reception year. In each country Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, the framework for learning, developing and care is distinct from England. In English schools the Early Years Foundation Curriculum runs from the ages of 3 to 5 years and therefore the framework is used in Reception and Nurseries. Learning with young children in the Early Years focuses on engaging children in activities that involve particular ideas in the classroom. For example, children the lesson may involve numbers or writing language activities.
