Does Literably work for students with foreign accents?

If English Language Learner status and home language information are uploaded with your roster files, we will apply accent-specific filters to the relevant students' reading transcripts to mitigate second language interference. Technical documentation on this process is available in this Literably Administration Note.

If you are using Clever with Literably, this Clever Help Center article has more information on how to update your rosters to incorporate students' ELL status and home language information.  If you are creating your Literably rosters manually, please consult this Literably Help Center article.

Currently, Literably supports filtering for the following home languages: Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin, Somali, Russian, Hmong, Vietnamese, Korean, Tagalog, Haitian Creole, and French. These include some of the most commonly spoken home languages, accounting for about 90% of English Language Learners in the United States. Future languages will be completed according to their prevalence in the population.
