ESL students have typically been introduced to many basic American English skills and need to reinforce them. ESL students do best building skills in a self-paced and focused fashion.
ESL software can be a great tool to help these students improve their American English skills. Particularly beneficial are programs that offer students immediate feedback and frequent places to produce printable data.
Merit Software ESL programs were designed with these features in mind. Many teachers have reported that they have been effective in helping them teach critical reading in classroom and lab settings.
Merit programs cover the core skills that ESL students need to master. The format holds student interest and keeps students engaged. Contextual help for students is available at various stages within all Merit programs. When working with Merit’s software, students are able to see their strengths and weaknesses in a non-judgmental manner. They accept responsibility for the challenge of improving their skills.
All Merit Software programs seamlessly integrate student records into a centralized management utility. This allows teachers to manage all student records in one place, monitor students’ progress, and view and print details of individual students or classes.
Merit ESL software is used in elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, community colleges, workplace education and alternative
schools. The special education software may also by tutors, therapists and parents.
