I was wondering if anyone might help me with this issue. I have a number of English language learners in my classes. Recently there was a near miss accident that was in part due to the student not understanding me and me not being able to catch the issue as their conversation in lab is not in a language I understand. 

I want the class to be inclusive but it is hard monitor issues when the conversations among students are not in English.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to handle this?
