The Impact of the System
Do you have a large ELL parent population in your school district? Audio Resource Group’s Talk & Listen® systems provide an easy way to communicate with ELL parents at multilingual school meetings. As a result, more ELL parents will become involved. And, it can significantly improve student achievement.
This is illustrated by Carolyn Godfrey of Sabal Elementary School in Florida,
“We purchased the translation devices for our Academic Parent Teacher Team meetings. We have three meetings during the school year. During the meetings, parents talk to their child’s teacher about standards, student growth, and activities they can do at home to help their child. We have a large Hispanic population and these devices provide the essential communication needed for parents who do not speak English. Instead of pulling these parents out of the meeting they feel comfortable with other parents and feel part of the team. Also, we use the translation equipment during our SAC meetings, PTO meetings, and any other parent event.”
Choose the Right Translation Equipment
Number of Languages Spoken: For every language interpreted, you’ll need one transmitter and microphone.
Number of Listeners: Every ELL listener will need translation headset, also called a receiver and headphones.
For example, if you have one interpreted language and 20 ELL parents, you’ll need a 1-language, 20 listener kit. In addition to premade kits, we can create any size kit for your needs.
Frequency: If you already have an existing 72 MHz system, select 72 MHz products. And, ARG’s 72 MHz Talk & Listen devices are compatible with most 72 MHz systems from other manufacturers. For increased performance, choose the 900 MHz Talk & Listen translation equipment.
