Oregon: ELL Resources

Map of Oregon

As of 2019, Oregon’s schools were home to more than 51,000 current English language learners and about the same number of students formerly designated as ELLs. In recent years, the most common five languages spoken by ELLs in Oregon have been Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Arabic.
