Help English Learners and LTELs Overcome Language Roadblocks

The key to unlocking proficiency is through understanding how language works and lives. Our English language development (ELD) programs for middle and high school are fully aligned with the most recent English proficiency standards to keep the focus on language development. They feature:

  • Age- and level-appropriate content designed specifically for secondary English learners
  • Sheltered instructional strategies, with video, visual, and audio reinforcements to make new concepts easier to grasp
  • Culturally-relevant pedagogy and academic language that reflects meaningful aspects of the learners' identities and daily life

Our solutions can serve as supplemental tools, form the instructional foundation for your designated ELD time, or be used for extended learning opportunities. They are typically supported by Title III and Title I funding.


English Language Development (ELD) Level 1

ELD Level 1 is an English language development program for beginner-level ELs and Newcomers in the secondary grades. It includes standards-based online assessments and lessons, built-in intervention resources, and a module on acculturation to support social-emotional development.

  • Provides teachers with a better understanding of each student's language gaps — all the way down to the individual skill level
  • Accelerates English language proficiency progress with lessons aligned with the latest ELD standards, including WIDA, CA 2012, TEKs, and NYS Next Gen ELA
  • Informs Newcomer students about school-related cultural norms, available resources, and equips them with functional vocabularyl


"The Language Tree Online program has been such an amazing resource for both myself and my students. There were multiple options when it came to learning. Students were able to work independently at their own pace. I was also able to easily check on student progress through the program."

High-speed broadband is highly recommended for an optimal learning experience.

Tip:  If students are experiencing slow downloads, video stoppages, and other interruptions, the issue is probably due to bandwidth limitations.  Please speak with your school or district IT network administrator to see if bandwidth can be increased.
