Ya Po Cha, a talented teacher of the Hmong language and of science at our school, recently prepared a short PowerPoint describing The Most Common Grammar Mistakes Hmong Students Make (he gave me position to post it here).

I think it’s helpful to anyone who teaches Hmong English Language Learners.  This presentation also shows that it’s useful for teachers to get a similar understanding of how the “rules” governing student native languages can affect their learning of English.
