Though I have appropriately realistic expectations about what might happen, I’ve been asked to describe what my ideal classroom for teaching Beginning & Intermediate English Language Learners would look like.

I’ve obviously got a lot of ideas, which I’ll share here when they are finalized. However, I thought I’d invite readers to share their thoughts, too.

What would your ideal ELL classroom look like? What kind of furniture? What kind of equipment? How large?

Of course, just as good ELL teaching is good teaching for everybody, many of these design issues would relate to all students. However, there are probably some things that might be particularly unique to an ELL classroom.

I’m all ears!
