Lily comes into school nervous because she is still not too comfortable with English and finds the new school intimidating. As she gets to her classroom, she notices a new reading assginment on the board.
She opened up her workbook. as Lily is doing the reading she comes across a word she is unfamiliar with, so she raises her hand to get help from the teacher.
When the teacher sat down with her, she looked at Lily and said, "I know you speak French at home, so you know this word, just sound it out loud."
The word engineer was the vocabulary word Lily had difficulties with, until the teacher made her realize it was a word she already knew from her L1.
As Lily is sounding the word out, she gasped, "c'est ingénieur!" she then realized she knew the word all along, she just needed the teacher to give her the push.
