English Language Learning
The English Language Learning (ELL) program at Brewster Academy integrates listening, speaking, reading, writing, thinking, content instruction, and language instruction. Cultural heritage and previous language experience of the international students are celebrated as resources in our multidimensional and thematic program. Three levels of support are provided: Comprehensive Language Program (CLP), Language Assistance Program (LAP), and enrollment in core classes with an instructional support plan or Language Study Skills (LSS), which is provided in conjunction with the 10th grade curriculum.
Tests administered in the ELL program include:
- TOEFL: Test of English as a Foreign Language
- SLEP: Secondary Language English Proficiency/Test
- TWE: Test of Written English
My teachers always took good care of me in class, introduced me to new friends, and offered lots of opportunities for me to step out from my comfort zone, and enjoy my time with everyone. Rew Karkhai '18
