Hi, I'm currently working as a teaching assistant (moving on to do a PGCE in September) and I'm working with a girl who is classed as EAL in my foundation stage class. The problem is that she speaks neither English or Polish (which is where she is from), just mostly gibberish and I have no idea how to help her move on. I play a lot of sound and picture games with her and have a lot of conversations to do with the environment around us or animals or stories (she loves princesses etc) and so on but have no idea where to go next. Do I just keep playing the same games and having conversations about the same things until she learns to speak English properly? I am in desperate need of help and advice!! If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
