English Language Learners

While the learning struggles of students can encompass cognitive and perceptive issues, some HOPE students face the added complex academic and social challenges of learning in a non-native language. These brave students rely on the utmost support of their learning community to navigate in a world where not only concepts and formulas are unfamiliar, but where instruction must be delivered in, what is to them, a foreign language in order to assure their immersion in English for future proficiency.

At HOPE, development of spoken and written English language skills at a student's own pace in a multimedia-rich environment helps students develop thinking, writing and speaking skills in English.
