Started with a new bunch of students—16 so far. All between 16 and 22 years. All from refugee families. They’ll be with me for 7 weeks over the summer.
They have a wide range of English ability, although at the low end. A year ago 3 of them were in my class. They have made a little progress but not a great deal. I’m going to concentrate on their basic writing. Maybe it’s the effect of the Arabic script, but their orthography is all over the place.
They are in Gore today, giving me time to analyze their needs.
