“Excell (Excellence for English Language Learners) is a language development program for high-school aged students. The idea is to provide a “soft landing” orientation course for students to show what they know (allowing for more accurate initial class placement) and for ELL teachers to help prepare students to enter the U.S. educational system, which may be vastly different from their own.” (quoted from the bhsexcell.wordpress.com/about/ page)
This WordPress was created by three Middlebury College students from the class of 2018: Mary, Sergio and Karen, who are enrolled in an Introduction to TESOL course. Our idea was to compile resources and activities for Excell students to enhance their oral and listening communication skills. We hope these resources will be of use throughout the years to come!
