ESL – English as a Second Language
Most English language learners are in this group. These learners may be entering secondary school from elementary school alongside their English-speaking peers, or they may be entering secondary school in Ontario having recently arrived from other countries. They can read and write in their own language within the expected range for students of their age in their own country. They can build on their existing first-language skills when learning English in an ESL program.
The five ESL courses are based on levels of proficiency in English. Depending on learners’ previous experience with English, students may be placed in ESL Level 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5.
For example, a student who has been in full-time education in his or her country of origin but who has never studied English would be placed in ESL Level 1.
A student who has been in full-time education in his or her own country and has studied some English might be placed in ESL Level 2 or 3 on the basis of the initial English language assessment.
A student who has studied English for several years might be placed in ESL Level 3, 4, or 5 on the basis of the initial English language assessment.
Students of Grade 9 age whose initial assessment indicates that they are beyond ESL Level 4 (ESLDO) should be placed directly in Grade 9 Applied English (ENG1P) or Grade 9 Academic English (ENG1D).
Unlike other schools, we do more than just familiarize students with exam questions and test-taking strategies; our enthusiastic instructors break the exam down into simple steps, starting with the very basics of the English language, especially vocabulary, and then build on this knowledge each day so that students can monitor their own progress and confidently take the IELTS exam.
