    History and Spelling of English

    I need help to answer these questions:

    1. Describe how your knowledge of the history of the English language will help you explain things to your students in an English as Second Language class. Give specific examples.
    2. What differences in student approach to English do you antecipate when working with students who speak a Latin or Germanic language versus students who speak Japanese, Chinese or Arabic?
    3. Describe strategies you will use in class to help you with your own spelling, if it's a problem, like bringing a dictionary to class or writing down troublesome vocabulary in your lesson plan.

    Tonny, this is your assignment. You can't expect anyone else to provide those answers.

    However, if you write your answers and ask someone to review them, that's another matter.
