Free Chat Today on Long-Term English-Language Learners


Kate Menken, an assistant professor of linguistics at City University of New York, will be a guest today for a chat about how schools can do a better job in educating students who spend years in special programs to learn English but never test out as fluent in the language. Educators call such students "long-term English-language learners." Often, they are among the two-thirds of ELLs who were born in the United States.

The chat—which uses text, not audio—will be opened for questions at 1:30 p.m., Eastern time, a half hour before it officially begins at 2 p.m. It will last for one hour. I'll be the moderator.

If you miss the chat, you can pull up a transcript of it soon after it's over. Just click on the same link that is in this post.
