The United States is culturally and linguistically diverse, and our education systems reflect this. In fact, in Fall of 2015, 4.8 million students in U.S. public schools were English Language Learners (ELL). As a language service provider for education systems, Telelanguage helps educators break down language barriers and connects people from different walks of life every day in order help organizations provide equal opportunities for students who are learning English to progress academically.
Educators – in both K-12 and higher education settings – face real challenges to providing the right language support. Our new resource, “Foreign Language Interpretation in Education; Serving Families in K-12 and Higher Education Environments” is a free white paper for organizations in education.
