Middle School ESL Program
 
This program aims at developing reading and writing skills with an emphasis on guided writing and paragraph development, while focusing on vocabulary enrichment and communicative skills. 
English-language learners may pick up conversational English, or Basic Interpersonal Communicative Skills (BICS), within two years, but school language, or Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency Skills (CALPS), may take 5 to 7 years, or even longer (Collier, 1987; Cummins, 1984)
