ENL (English as a New Language)

BrainPop ELL

District 20 has a large ELL population. BrainPop ELL has many videos for just that. The animated videos have a range of topics they discuss with closed captions available, a vocabulary section on the right side of the video, as well as a grammar section. BrainPop ELL has 3 levels of videos, Level 1 being for our beginner ELLs.


Duolingo is a language learning website/app that would benefit our ELL population. You create a free login and can practice their English skills. Many of our students don’t get to hear the language at home and this would be an excellent opportunity.
