Milieu language strategies on English language growth in children who are English language learners

It was aim of this study to examine how two distinct perspectives, bilingual education and special education, can be used to inform each other to provide preschool teachers with effective language strategies to use with children learning English as a second language. The researchers found milieu language strategies can encourage English growth and can be implemented with fidelity by the teachers into regular, daily interactions and teaching with the children. Language-based teaching strategies are helpful in facilitating verbal interactions between children and with the teachers while promoting language growth in children who are native English speakers and those who are learning English as a second language.
