EAL Starter Kit The EAL starter kit will help the EAL coordinator to become effective quickly. Using the contents of the kit, Children and parents with English as a second language will be able to communicate with teachers and administrators and understand the school's rules, policies and letters that are sent out periodically.

All the components above are described separately elsewhere in this catalogue (see page references). In this context, the CreateLINK software allows teachers, EAL coordinators and parents to make audio recordings on any topic and to sound enable them using sticky labels, or soundspots printed onto any of our posters or books. For example, if the school wanted to communicate a letter to parents in Polish, a Polish bilingual parent could record the letter onto a sticky label and attach it to the letter which could then be sent to other parents with the pen. Parents would then be able to fully understand the requirements of the letter.
