Esther  - SISD grade 4, bilingual English-German section

When Esther joined SISD in September 2015 her English language level was low and she would often show extreme frustration whenever it was English week. Esther relied on her classmates and her iPad translator in English comprehension and speaking skills. Once these support options were removed, she began relying heavily on herself and the skills she had been learning in class and in the EFL program. Esther is now one of the top English students in her class. She loves to have conversations in English and has even moved up five reading levels. Esther has been a great tutor to some of her classmates and was released from the English as Foreign Language (EFL) programme after the Spring Break (March 2016) holiday. Congratulations Esther, we knew you could do it!
