Who are English Language Learners?

The terms ESL (English as a Second Language), and ELL (English Language Learners), are often used interchangeably to refer to students for whom English is not the primary language learned as a child, or used at home in day-to-day life. ELL students at Fredonia come from varied language and cultural backgrounds.
