Although the situation in North America varies dramatically by school district, it is sometimes the case that students who enter ESL classes under these ghettoizing conditions simply never leave. Even rooms designated for ESL classes are reported to be the leftovers, old, small spaces deemed not good enough for other classes (Schmidt, 2000). All of these negative features can, under good conditions (Harklau, 1994a; Walqui, 2000), be corrected with better ESL instruction and responsible administration, except one: isolation.

Li, 1999), sometimes less so (Casanave, 1992). Belcher’s work (1994, 1997) demonstrated, for example, that the students she studied were more successful and more satisfied with their experience in graduate school when their faculty advisors did not assume that the students would simply align themselves to disciplinary standards; instead, the students who thrived had advisors who assumed that the students would alter the disciplines they were entering and would bring to the disciplines their unique perspectives as bicultural operators.

On one hand, it must provide instruction and practice in the kind of language that will promote expansion of academic skills (referred to as Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency, or CALP; Cummins, 1986). On the other hand, the ESL class should also equip students with the kind of everyday language that would allow their eventual integration into high school social life (often referred to as Basic Interpersonal Communication Skills, or BICS; Cummins, 1986). Development of BICS allows English language learners to interact with their peers in ways that will promote not only a sense of belonging socially but also the language development and cultural knowledge necessary for academic success (see below).
