These students have varied experience both in terms of prior education, first language skills and in learning English. Research into the acquisition of second language indicates that children can take up to two years to develop ‘basic interpersonal communication skills’ (school playground/street survival language) but it can take from five to seven years or more, to acquire the full range of literacy skills (‘cognitive academic language proficiency’) needed to cope with the literacy demands of the curriculum.
