E. Platt, J. Shrawder, Z. Vjhelyi, T. Wannawati

A rapidly growing number of youth and adults in the United States have limited English ability. This has implications for both the American economy and the educational system. This document includes interviews with vocational and language teachers. When these teachers collaborate, students benefit. Vocational classrooms can be ideal settings for English language development, and improved language skills make it easier for students to learn vocational skills.
