Here at South Side we are privileged to have several different nationalities represented by our students. In our ESL class, we learn more about English while making connections to our first language. Learning a new language isn't always easy but it is rewarding as we learn to communicate more easily with people around us. I encourage all my students to keep reading and speaking in their native language outside of school; this will only help their English skills when they're in the classroom, as they can make more and more connections between both languages. Thanks for stopping in!
