Goals of our ESL Program


  • Language acquisition is more than just vocabulary and language rules. It requires a relevant and supportive environment where students feel engaged and involved in the learning process


  • Build confidence in each student so they are willing to take risks and participate successfully within their classrooms


  • Introduce vocabulary and concepts through activities, games and conversations in one to one and group situations


  • ESL is conversation driven as conversation is language at work


  • Develop the students' skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening


  • Advocate for students in the classroom and collaborate with teachers to provide an optimal learning environment


  • Work as a liaison between school and family to ensure good communication and understanding
