Welcome to English as a Second Language at Josyf Cardinal Slipyj. The ESL Program at our school is provided for students from  grades 4 to 8. 
Students are withdrawn from their regular classroom for 40 to 60 minutes daily during their Language Arts period.
The major goal of the English as a Second Language programme is to develop communication through the three strands: oral (includes listening and speaking), reading (includes reading comprehension and writing (which also includes English grammar). 

Evaluation of these components is based on: 
1. Class participation
2. Homework, quizzes, unit tests, projects
3. Effort, co-operation and personal responsibility for behaviour
The programme fosters understanding of the structures and function of the English language. I look forward to an exciting year in working with these wonderful students.
