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!
