Students of English as a Second Language  
From 2001-2005, students at the Lab School were regular students in the ESL program at Portland Community College. The majority of these students were just beginning to learn English.

That group of students represented more than 60 different countries and 39 different languages. They vary widely in their level of education. Some have had no formal education while others hold college degrees.


They ranged in age from 17 to 77. All signed a consent form translated into their own language which informed them that the audio and video data collected at the Lab School would be used for research and professional development only.
