Oct. 21-25 is English as a Second Language week in Canada. It is a time to recognize the valuable work our ESL teachers do, the exciting progress our ESL students make, and the significant impact language has in transforming lives. Canada thrives on change and diversity, and the ESL field contributes so much to the values and identity of Canadians.
If you are studying ESL in Canada, congratulations! You should be proud of the hard work you are doing to achieve your dreams. If you are teaching ESL, thank you! You should be proud to be an ambassador for the new participants in Canada’s culture. For anyone who has learned a second language, you know how much power it gives you.
Happy ESL Week, everyone!
