English as a second language (ESL) for children in Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Richmond, ...

English as a Second Language - ESL"British Columbia is a diverse society; people from all parts of the globe contribute to the social, cultural and linguistic fabric of our Province. This diversity is mirrored in our schools' population, both in the contributions made and in the unique needs which must be met in order to achieve the purpose of the education system." (ESL Policy Framework, Ministry of Education)

Research shows that, on average, students take from five to seven years to approach grade norms on standardized tests in English verbal-academic skills (Virginia Collier, 1995; Jim Cummins, 1996). It is a complex process because four areas of language skills need to be developed: speaking, listening, reading and writing. In addition, a vast number of cultural references need to be incorporated into a student’s background knowledge in order to become fluent.
