Discover how you can support English as an Additional Language (EAL) learners to extend their existing spoken language knowledge and build their mastery to experience success in writing tasks.
In the 21st century, there has been a massive transformation in teaching English due to the ongoing refugee crisis and globalisation of migration. This often leads to frequent dilemmas faced by teachers in choosing the right teaching pedagogy and methodology to ensure optimum engagement for EAL students.
