I'm concerned with language acquisition for grades k-1. Is it better for the students to learn English in small groups or one on one. The research says either, but there are some who have no English and they speak their mother tongue at home. I guess I'm questioning the development phase - when CAN they learn to distinguish the words in contextual context? Please advise.
