NYSED Bilingual Glossaries & Instructional Resources

Click here to access materials from the NYS Language RBERN
Bilingual glossaries are an essential and expected test accommodation for English Learners in the State of New York. This website presents glossaries for at least the top 10 state languages at the state level, but it is updated with new languages with requests from schools and updates in state data.

These glossaries may also be used by teachers, test translators and interpreters, as well as school-based instructional materials developers. Most importantly, schools are advised to make these glossaries available for their ELs as soon as they enter school; parents should also be given access to glossaries as an important school-parent relation on behalf of students.
