    In truth many of the programs that help ESOL students can make them
    completely successful in the classroom. Just remember when dealing with LD
    or ESOL studnets use more visual cues to indicate meaning. It takes about
    two years for an ESOL student to gain even a social fluency with the language
    and over five years to have academic fluency. The key to working with these
    students is to use visuals, handouts they can follow and most importantly to
    immerse them in the English language itself. You may not have the letter
    grade success with these students that you will have with the natural English
    speaking students, but even a little success moves them closer to academic
    language fluency.
