PERIODICAL RESEARCH PAPER2Periodical ResearchIntroductionOver the last 30 years, refugees and many immigrants have been entering the UnitedStates. The increased immigrants’ population has made the United States express concern on theforeign-born populations (Haynes, 2001). However, the foreign population living in the UnitedStates is more than 14million immigrants who moved into the states in the 1990s (Haynes,2001). The United States had estimated the expected population to arrive in the states to be about14million between 2000 and 2010 (Haynes, 2001). These increasing numbers have led tounderserved students of English language learners (ELLs). This research paper will discussEnglish language learning in the United States by its immigrants and refugees from othercountries.Effects Of Racism, Stereotyping, And Discrimination In Teaching And Learning Of EllsFrom Diverse Backgrounds And At Varying English Proficiency Levels.Some reports show English language learners as a new homogeneous population in theUnited States. However, this is not the case because most of Ell’s students are a highly complexand heterogeneous population of students (Haynes, 2001). These students have different specialgifts as well as different educational needs. They also have different social backgrounds andlearn the English language with specific goals (Haynes, 2001).

Therefore, racism is a bigchallenge to English language learning because students discriminate against others based ontheir culture and social backgrounds.Similarities and Differences between English and Other LanguagesThere are various similarities and differences in English and other languages as identifiedin the ELLs student population (Haynes, 2001). The similarities identified include the following;Firstly, in both cases, learning proficiency is influenced by the learner’s competence in thedominant of language concerned (Haynes, 2001). Therefore, the renewed focus on the ways ofteaching both categories of languages can only assist the learner who is competent and willing to
