We strive to speak as much English in class as possible. This couldn’t be done without the help of our trusty procedural language. When we or our Nicaraguan Counterparts give simple instructions in English and students respond correctly, they are using the language in an authentic way. Albeit small, it is an important part of the learning process. Now that we are nearing the end of the school year, these are a daily part of our classroom interactions. It’s incredible to see how far our students have come.
