Merit Question and Answer
Non-Native English Speakers with Vocabulary Problems



QUESTION:

Area of Concern: Vocabulary
Submitted by: Teacher
Grade Level: ESL
Competency: Below Level
ESL students with Navajo influence. They have very limited vocabulary, poor comprehension and reading strategies and can't seem to apply skills learned from previous lessons.



ANSWER:

Thank you for contacting us. Merit Software has helped many ESL students improve their language skills.

For your students I recommend Reading Shape Up Series and Vocabulary Stretch.

Reading Shape Up Series (contains sets 1 and 2) helps students master specific reading skills: vocabulary, sequence, main idea, fact-opinion, factual recall, and inference.

Vocabulary Stretch helps students build vocabulary, recognize words in different contexts, and understand where many English words come from.

Good luck!
