Abstract

In our globalized world, proficiency in another language is often as important as other basic competencies such as literacy and arithmetic skills. Therefore, it is of great importance that students who have special educational needs receive assistance not only in basic academic skills but also in learning foreign/second languages (L2). Providing these language learners with adequate support is especially imminent in the case of English, which has become an international language, and which is a foreign language most frequently taught in many countries of the world.
