I have a teacher in my department (NQT, joined the school last November) who has English as a second language. Although I usually understand what she is saying, I sometimes struggle a bit. Unfortunately, I have had a number of complaints from students (and parents) who can't understand what she is saying. I have discussed this (sensitively) with the teacher and she has made an effort to try to make her explanations clearer, but there are still issues. She is proving herself to be a 'satisfactory' teacher but not particularly 'good', so unless we can help her to make a big improvement in her teaching, the head won't kep her on when her contract comes to and end in the summer. But in the meantime, I need to help her and the pupils to understand each other! Has anyone had similar experiences? And any solutions?
