Hi, I am starting a research project and my proposal is the question, "Are colleges preparing teachers to handle students that do not speak English?" I am preferrably doing the study on the Spanish Language and elementary teachers, but want to know eveyone's opinion. I would like to know if foreign language was part of your degree plan, do you feel prepared to handle a student that does not speak English, and, if you did take foreign language in college, how many years and was it mandatory? Also, if you know of any studies of this subjects or good places for me to look I would appreciate it greatly. Thanks!
