How the ELL Brain Learns

"This book puts all of the research about the brain together to show what is happening during the process of learning multiple languages. It is very informative in showing how to implement effective teaching strategies with quality instruction."
"This book is one of the best I’ve read on how the brain functions in second language learners, and is invaluable for learning about ELLs with learning disabilities."
"David Sousa's books serve as manuals for the application of empirically-validated strategies, meeting the needs of hopeful teachers and parents alike in almost any instructional context: home-school, classroom, or higher education. I would be excited to use this text with my students who are unfamiliar with the issues involved in reaching ELL students in the classroom."
