Issues for SLL’s

Some instructors of English Language Learners may underestimate the skills these students already have developed in their home language. These skills will be useful for them when learning English as their second language, no matter how minimal they may be at the time. Another issue SSL’s face is when instructors focus too much on the mechanics of writing and not so much on critical thinking and purpose of writing. However, students may not bring prior knowledge of certain mechanics of the English language with them and therefore may struggle with certain details within the language.
