New Teacher Diaries, Dec. 12]. How encouraging to learn there is such a wise and sensitive English as a new language teacher in New York City! The strategies the teacher employs to increase students’ understanding of words will go far in increasing their overall success in school and in life. ENL teachers, and all teachers of English, also should inspire their students by reading aloud poetry and excerpts from fictional works that are appropriate for their students’ age and capabilities.
