alevel science words and EAL students

Discussion in 'Science' started by tamsyneast, Mar 13, 2011.

  1. Another quick thing - i have a few students who have spanish/portuguese as their first language - anyone know if there are any tailor made dictionaries/resources that students can use to help them deal with all the new words that is found in the sciences at a-level. ideally an app or something would exist for it - not been able to find anything myself

    cheers tams
