Teachers, headteachers, and other educators work with students who come from a wide range of cultural backgrounds and speak a multitude of languages. This book covers teaching language learners whose native languages are: Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Arabic, Tagalog, Haitian Creole, Navajo, Hmong, Cantonese, and Korean. The author also offers practical resources to aid teachers in basic communication with ELL students and their families.

"An outstanding contribution to the teaching of children whose first language is not English. With a unique approach and respect for a variety of different ethnicities, this book should be an essential tool for many teachers." -- Marilyn Sachs, Children's Book Author
"Finally, a book that gets at the heart of communicating with ESL/ELL students. This book hits home by focusing interaction with students on a cultural level within each language group, and then takes it a step further with ideas for parental communication. A must-have for teachers trying to break down communication barriers." -- Andrew Pontius, Middle School Teacher
"The authors have created a must-have resource for any teacher who works with ELL students. This book may be the difference between success and failure, for both the teacher and the student." -- Patrick F. Sheedy III, Executive Director
"A crucial tool for teachers who have second language learners in their classes. Its simple, user-friendly format provides teachers with critical communication resources to maximize students' English language acquisition." -- Diane Whitehouse, Educational Consultant
"Designed by classroom teachers for classroom teachers, this book is a supremely useful tool for effective and immediate communication with ESL students." -- Shane M. Doyle, Program Coordinator
