re: My elementary school now has more ESL students than regular students - GoIrish02
[quote]In looking at the bilingual models, late-exit and dual immersion, many researchers ask whether or not learning the primary language will also help in learning English. In a paper titled, “Monolingual and Bilingual Acquisition: Learning Different Treatments of that-trace Phenomena in E...

re: My elementary school now has more ESL students than regular students - GoIrish02
[quote]Prove it.  Where is this imagined research that shows esl doesn't work[/quote] You're just a troll, the research is there and well documented. If you were a student of language you'd know this. Not to mention multiple Mexican American chambers of commerce and business associations that...

re: My elementary school now has more ESL students than regular students - GoIrish02
[quote]Then why are they in the ESL classes? [/quote] ESL doesn't really work. The teacher spends most of the time teaching in the native language in practice. Trying to teach a language while educating at the same time is a failed strategy, as opposed to full immersion in school in English, ...

re: My elementary school now has more ESL students than regular students - GoIrish02
One group wanted English to be their first and only language, one group wants English to be their second language. One group adopts the culture of their new home, one wants to replace the culture of their home with that of corrupt third world countries. ESL = English as a [b]Second [/b] language ...

re: My elementary school now has more ESL students than regular students - GoIrish02
[quote] all of the ESL students are illegal or do you know this for a fact[/quote] It doesn't really matter, they refuse to learn the language and adopt American culture. They are relegated to economic slavery without learning English anyway and will be unproductive citizens, but they'll get to v...

[quote] bring back the trail of tears on illegals[/quote] No one likes to discuss it, but we've deported en masse before and done so successfully. The Eisenhower administration recognized this problem of massive cultural changes in the 50s in the Southwest. The federal government succes...

re: Former Saint CB Jabari Greer - GoIrish02
Vilma is the new NBC sideline reporter for Notre Dame football on NBC. As an ND fan, having a former player from Da U as a commentator makes me want to vomit, more than the new Boston College trashbag in the booth, Doug Flutie. I guess it's an improvement over the murdering sideline reporter ...

re: Race Baiting Hispanic Reporter Gets Her Script Flipped - GoIrish02
[quote]...any chance Trump could win a decent portion of the black vote?[/quote] The black vote is so insignificant it wouldn't make a difference anyway. Same is true of the Hispanic vote, the Republican candidate doesn't need it to win. The only thing necessary to win is to turn out the conserva...

re: Race Baiting Hispanic Reporter Gets Her Script Flipped - GoIrish02
[quote] All they want to do is take back what was stolen from them years ago. [/quote] It wasn't stolen, I guess they don't teach kids about the Mexican American war anymore. If they wanted to keep the land they should've fought a little harder and won a battle or two, or not given away a bi...

106.1 FM - Gone - GoIrish02
They keep playing the same 2 songs, something by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and "The End of the World as We Know It" by REM. Oh well, they always sounded like they were running the station on a generator or off the air during the day anyway. ...

re: Selling house a year and two months after buying - GoIrish02
No one pays 6% on the whole sales price anymore, except suckers who don't know enough about the market to negotiate. Pay 6% on the first $100,000, 3% thereafter. I've sold multiple houses at this commission rate in the last 10 years. Every potential realtor I interviwed opened with a tiered commi...
