The school where I teach is a Title I school. Many students are under poverty. We have 100% reduced lunch. Last year, I taught 1st through 4th grade ESL (English as Second Language), and 7 newcomers who spoke no English at all. We definitely need more bilingual dictionaries for those ESL students to help them learn at school. I would love each of them to take a bilingual dictionary to their regular classroom and home to help them with their classwork and homework. We have all Spanish speaking ESL students except one last year and this year. Most of our ESL students don't have Internet access at home. If they have a dictionary, then they don't need internet to translate. What I've noticed is that, students know what to write about a certain prompt and know how to express their ideas and thoughts in Spanish. The language is what they are struggling with believe having a bilingual dictionary is required for ESL students. It will make their school life much easier and more proficient.
