EAL

Recommended Posts

We are a day nursery in a rural area and very rarely have any children with EAL. We have a little boy at the moment who is 2 and from Bulgaria. He has been with us since the new year. He has only a handful of English words but when his parents collect him, he chatters away to them in Bulgarian, so has well developed language skills in his home language.

We are looking for some ideas to support him.

We don't know any Bulgarian, although of course we can ask his parents. Bulgarian has a different script to English (in the same way as Russian and Greek do).

Any ideas gratefully received! Thanks.

we have a simular situation, we found that by asking the parents to tell us a few words, we wrote them down in the way you would say them so that we could use some, I found Welcome in the home langauge and added it to an existing poster we have on display. we asked for traditional music and they lent us a cd which we used along side other world music for an activity, ask if they have any children's books you could borrow and share, we just used the pictures to tell the story. Hope that helps give you some ideas.
