Secondary English as a Second Language (ESL) and English Literacy Development (ELD) Non-Credit Courses

The Secondary ESL and ELD non-credit summer courses are open to current secondary school day students. These courses will be held at Eagle Heights Public School as part of the Newcomer Family Summer School program.

Course Description:  These non-credit courses provide secondary English Language Learners (ELLs) at the beginning levels of proficiency with opportunities to improve their oral language, reading and writing skills through a variety of rich, experiential learning opportunities in the local community.  Secondary ESL A and ELD A students will develop language skills contextualized by weekly field trip opportunities (1 full day per week). ELLs who are approaching STEP 1 or are on STEP 1 are ideal candidates for this course. 

ELDAO is for students at the beginning level of proficiency in the English Literacy Development program who have had limited access to schooling.

ESLAO is for students at the beginning level of proficiency with age-appropriate schooling who are building on their previous education to learn English.
