Objectives

The English as a Second Language Council (ESLC) acts as an advocate on behalf of students learning English as a second language and seeks to constantly improve and promote the teaching of English as a second language.

Activities

To achieve its mandate, the ESLC promotes the increased sharing of ideas and concerns related to students learning English as a second language, and encourages contact among teachers working with ESL students. The Council seeks to provide opportunities for learning and improving classroom strategies with ESL students. Up-to-date information is readily available on the direction of ESL instruction at all levels: locally, nationally and internationally.

Crucial to achieving these goals is the annual conference, which provides keynote speakers and workshops to provide stimulating classroom ideas for ESL teachers.

Publications

The ESLC publishes the Accent e-newsletter.
