Any ELLS who could help me answer some questions about your culture and education?

<*** class="md">Hello, I am a Biology Major specializing in 7-12 grade education. I have an assignment that requires me to ask educators/ or students about understanding how different personal experiences with English and American culture have affected their lives. I am of Hispanic/Mexican descent, I would be grateful if I could get a different perspective on other cultures :). Here are some questions:

  1. What languages and cultures makeup who you are and how you see yourself? Does your first language(s) and or culture(s) influence your life and your thinking about the world?
  2. Do you think you can use English better in some situations than others? For example, do you feel more comfortable speaking English in social situations with friends or in reading and writing English in class?
  3. have you faced prejudice or discrimination in the U.S. because of your language or culture? Examples?
  4. What would you like teachers to know about students for whom English is a second or additional language?
  5. How were your experiences with learning English? When did you start learning English – did you learn English before you came to the U.S.?

Any help is appreciated.
