    I have many new students arriving in year 10 and 11 who speak little or no English but are reasonably good at maths. They are always underachieving because of their language skills. Does anyone know of resources that can help as this is only going to get worse with the amount of written questions in the new spec GCSE.

    It's the same for English speakers.

    The only thing that really work is repetition with the mathematical language.

    Maths papers are awfully written anyway so it will be hard.

    There are lots of on-line resources in Spanish for maths at this level.
    Do a search for E.S.O. mathematicas.
    O.K. so you are not pushing on their English skills but it may help them to get going.initially
    In addition you could order some texts from Amazon in Spain They have lots of ESO maths texts

    ESO = Educación Secundaria Obligatoria
