The EAL department supports bilingual students who are learning English as an Additional Language. We work together with teachers and student achievement coordinators to ensure all of our students are able to access the curriculum and make good progress.
Some of our students are new arrivals to Britain. We provide a supportive “Survival English” programme, teaching reading and writing skills including spelling and vocabulary, and basic communication skills. This programme also helps students settle in to Academy life.
Once students have passed this first level, we offer small group support as needed. Occasionally we withdraw students from one or two lessons per week, to gain extra English classes. These classes are tailored to the group’s needs and provide short, intensive support.
In Years 9, 10 and 11 we offer timetabled EAL classes, to give time and focus to students’ English skills. We help students to improve their speaking and listening skills, pronunciation, reading and writing skills, grammar and vocabulary. Students are challenged to read English books, and learn to express themselves informally and formally, through written work, presentations, films and drama. We also develop study skills which are transferable across the curriculum. Many of our students have been in England for a number of years. Advanced Bilingual Students still need support to be able to pass GCSE qualifications with good grades, and focused English language input to help them access higher level university and college courses in the future.
The EAL department offers accreditation in ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) at Entry level, Level 1 and Level 2 Edexcel Skills for Life qualifications. Our Sixth Form programme enables students to gain a full Level 2 qualification in ESOL, which equates to a ‘B’ at GCSE level.
EAL at Bristol Met is well established and extremely successful. We welcome students from all over the world, and pride ourselves on our inclusive education. We celebrate diversity, recognise additional languages as a true asset, and enjoy being part of such a vibrant and caring community.
Please do visit us if you need any more information. We have Polish, Arabic, Somali, Urdu, French, German, Spanish and Dutch speakers available if you prefer to talk in your first language.

Researchers also found little consistency in the types of chemicals womens dick butkus jersey from field to field, perhaps because of differences in the rubber between products, they said.

Researchers would also analyze exposure to chemicals including aromatic hydrocarbons, acetone, benzene and naphthalene.

Cobre, authentic erik pears womens jersey Chihuahua, but subsequent searches have found neither Imperial Woodpecker, nor appropriate habitat or recent local knowledge of the species, within a 50 km radius of the aj hawk mens jersey locality (G. R. Homel in litt. 2005). There are now no unsurveyed old growth remnants that are large enough for a breeding territory (M. Lammertink in litt. 2007). In March 2010, the location of the 1956 record in Durango was checked, but no evidence of the species was desmond bryant womens authentic jersey found, and terence newman youth authentic jersey interviews suggest that the species disappeared from the area in 1956 1960 (M.

Even if a few individuals persist, extensive habitat modification and continued hunting pressure from rural people has made extinction virtually inevitable (Lammertink et al. 1996, M. Lammertink in litt. 1996). Most records are from elevations of 1,920 3,050 m, but there are records as low as 1,675 m. There are many reports of more than four individuals, and this grouping behaviour may be related to its foraging specialisation. The main food source, beetle
The Fox vs. The Jungle By default, most Mac OS X users use Safari. The Elite White Brandon Carlo Jersey reason being, of course, that it comes pre installed on all Macs and it’s also quite a good browser in its own right. Despite being a technically excellent platform, Kid Tuukka Rask Jersey the problem is that very few sites are Authenitc Black Dougie Hamilton Jersey developed with Safari in mind and, as such, many sites can have rendering problems. The good news is that Mozilla, developers of the awesomely Elite Dougie Hamilton Jersey cool Firefox browser, have a version for Mac OS X available.

Naturally, this means that developers will focus more time on ensuring that their sites are compatible with Firefox. In fact, most
The football safety is a vital defensive position. The Elite White Marc Savard Jersey safety is the last mine of defense when playing defensive back during pass coverage. The football safety also must have the ability to play as an extra run defender when the offense tries to grind yards out on the ground. A safety will often be responsible for the slot receiver or tight end in a defensive scheme. Practice man to man coverage by lining a safety a yard or so off the wide receiver in a cornerback type alignment. Have the wide receiver run a range of pass routes with the safety in pass coverage. Begin the drill by having the safety know which pass route is going to be run, this will slow the defensive back to work on footwork at full speed. Progress this drill to the wide receiver running a pass route unknown to the safety, and the safety being forced to cover him under game like conditions. Start each repetition 20 yards away from the end zone and award the wide receiver a point for each complete pass, and 10 points for
