Difficulties in English Language Learning for Students with Dyslexia

Open access


Teachers always try to give their best to educate all students that have been entrusted to them!

Knowing that everybody has the right to learn and be well educated, the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology after the war took considerable actions in an effort to promote inclusive education in the Kosovo education system (Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology, 2007). However, teachers are facing different challenges while trying to teach students with mild or moderate specific learning difficulties together with those who don’t have learning difficulties.

Understanding specific learning difficulties may not be hard but handling it is a great challenge.

So what are specific learning difficulties?

This research studies specific areas of inclusive education based on the difficulties students have while learning English Language, how to deal with these difficulties, how can inclusive practices within the school help, what practical teaching approaches can be used, what teaching methods are used or can be used in the inclusive classes in order to come to a conclusion of what can be done more about inclusiveness and understand the importance of inclusive education not only in the centers where the work is done but throughout Kosovo.

Remember: Students with specific learning difficulties are just like you and me, they just have a different learning style!
