English as a Second Language

English language learners (ELL) come with many assets and skills.

They will:

  • Learn English at the same time as they learn the Ontario curriculum;
  • See themselves in the learning environment;
  • Feel that their culture and language are valued;
  • Have confidence to express their opinion and know they have avoice;
  • Meet high expectations when they are involved in setting goals; and
  • Have opportunities to choose pathways that honour their strength and interests.

Who are English Language Learners?

An English language learner is a student whose first language is other than English or is a variety of English that is significantly different from what is used for instruction in Ontario schools.
