ENGLISH AS A NEW LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT
Welcome to Great Neck North High School! You have come to a wonderful place. As an English as a New Language (ENL) student, we are committed to providing you with language support to enhance your high school experience.
Our role is to help you develop your listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in English as quickly as possible. Our classroom is on the first floor, across from the Library in room 127. It is our pleasure to help you acquire the English you need to be successful in your classes at North High and in your life outside of school.
Learning a new subject, such as Social Studies or Science, through a language that is not your native language this a very big challenge. At times, it may be exhausting and overwhelming. Be patient with yourself. In time, you will learn English and be successful. Change is difficult for everyone. Please know that we are here for you--not only to teach you English but also to make your adjustment to living in the United States a little easier. Feel free to come to us anytime with questions and/or concerns. If we don't know the answer to your question, we will find someone who does. Good luck and welcome to Great Neck!
