Talk slowly


Emphasise key words


Use lots of tone


Use lots of hand gestures/signals


Use pictures/images


Find a translator


The wording is ambiguous, though, especially if it's an essay question? Don't assume that just because their first language is not English, that doesn't mean they don't have it as a fluent second, third or fourth one!
