10/27/09 the typical student who comes to the US gets enrolled and flourishes well in the non English class. They also have a lot of art and PE classes. They may have a biology and math class. They do ok with art and do bad in math. Biology just is not going to do it. If they don’t leave school out of frustration and stick around, they will most likely have a lot of incomplete core courses and not be on track for college. There is lots of evidence that says that people that are fluent in their own language learn English a lot faster. There are bilingual English classes so they can transfer their linguistic skills to a new language. Some say that bilingual education doesn’t work and an all-English immersion is best. It is most likely the difference between good and bad teachers. These people are poor. A quarter of them are refugees coming from the Burmese border and soviet countries. A quarter of them had interruptions in their education between a year and 10 years. Some have never been to school. There are some that are incredibly educated, they just don’t know English.
