ESL is a professional English language program for non-native English learners who speak English as a second language. By participating in ESL courses, candidates can not only improve their language level, but also have a deeper understanding of the social structure and local culture of Canada, so that their language ability can reach the level of successful study, work and life in Canada.
Each Level (A/B/C) is composed of the four modules of English: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing.
Students will listen to English from native speakers via their teacher and other media. They will also listen to English spoken by their peers. They must focus their attention on the speaker’s message in order to comprehend and produce a meaningful response.
Students will have the daily opportunity to practice speaking in structured conversations with their peers. Also, there will be several projects which require the students to present information to the class using newly acquired English skills.
Students will be reading a variety of modified texts, including short stories, poetry, and expository writing, with guidance and support from their teacher and peers. Students will learn various strategies to help them comprehend a text in their second language. They will also learn analytical skills necessary to interpret both literature and images.
Students will be writing on a daily basis, practicing the grammar structures and the new vocabulary. They will write a variety of personal narratives, descriptions, reports, poems, and reflections based on the literature. They will also have the opportunity to create their own works of creative fiction in response to various texts.
