Glossaries

Bilingual glossaries are intended to be used by teachers, LEP students, test translators, and material and curricula developers. Students may use these documents as supplements to their texts, as study or as references when taking the Regents examinations. Teachers can use the glossaries as reference in preparing lessons. They should be of special value in classrooms where the teachers do not speak the targeted languages. It is important to point out that the translators of the Regents examinations will also use the glossaries to prepare the translations of the subject area Regents tests.
