This could be a blessing in disguise. Would the teacher be ok with her sitting somewhere in the back during class time and just reading in English and then writing up summaries as she finished the readings? It would certainly be a variation on captive reading in that she would either suffer through class or suffer through a book of her choosing.
Tatyana L, I'm afraid her reading/writing level is not high enough for that, her English is mainly speaking and oral comprehension. We'll see how the teacher tackles this in the first quarter. (She promised to eventually speak only English in class.)
So I posted that yesterday. About 15 minutes later, my daughter's English teacher sent a message to parents about the first English test she'd handed back that day, reminding parents they needed to help their kids on a regular basis as the results hadn't been good. I asked my daughter to show me the test. Here is her mark:

Azeem: I will be a father soonest, and I'm curious about nurturing my child's English and my local dialect 'Yoruba' speaking ability from the start. I live in Germany, where English is a minority language.
