    Hi all,

    I am a new ESL teacher teaching in a Peruvian bilingual (well, aiming to be bilingual) school. I have one grade 8 class that has two students who have come in from the USA and so speak English.

    I wonder if anyone on the forum has had a similar experience and could give me some advice.

    I would like to find some way of getting the two English speakers to get involved in teaching the other students. They are not challenged by the English learning tasks and when given a chance to flex their English language muscle (with written task and debates for example) they do just as much as they need to and no more.

    Any thoughts on this would be greatly accepted.

    Have fun
