Feedback from ESL students

ESL students at Frankfurt International School were asked what feedback they would like to give to their mainstream teachers. I have allocated their comments to various categories, but have not changed their original words. An asterisk* represents the fact that more than one student made a comment of a similar nature.

Mainstream teachers were asked they would like to say to their ESL students. The great majority of respondents said that ESL students should take a little more initiative in asking for help or expressing lack of understanding. At the very least ESL students who cannot answer questions should make it clear to the teacher whether this is because they don't understand the question, don't know the answer, or don't know how to say the answer in English.
