Although the educator may not be familiar with
the ESL student’s culture or language, a strong attempt must be made to
validate the student’s first language. It is very important that the teacher of
an ESL learner empathize with the student’s position. The instructor should try
to imagine what the ESL student is experiencing after being immersed in a new
culture and new language for the first time.
