English Language Learner Resources

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.

Where do English language learners come from?

Our students have diverse backgrounds and experiences. They may be born Canadian, but speak another language at home. Others arrive from other countries, such as China, Cuba, Mexico, Egypt, Nigeria and the Philippines. English language learners receive direct language instruction as needed in order to achieve proficiency in English.
