We have a mixed group of children from 3/4 nationalities. We use alot of hand signals and a lot of facial expressions. Our children start at 2yrs old so short sentences and very repetative sentences always at the same time for the same thing. we sometimes get the over the silent period before they leave us and some don't but they usually start school with good english. We don't treat themany different from the children that arrive from english families who don't have much language. We do try and understand the main words they use for the obvious toilet etc. but apart from that nothing else.

We also get a list of basic words from parents. We put these on a list with pronunciation in brackets!

Last term I got quite good at saying good morning and goodbye in arabic along with a few other words.

 

Initially we use the child's home language immediately followed by the english transalation. It works for us and my (very basic!) arabic is no longer needed as the child understands and speaks in english now
