Teaching ESL in Canada is a valuable resource for anyone who teaches English as a Second Language (ESL) in academic or private language schools or to adult newcomers to Canada. The text can be used in TESL classrooms or as a resource for individual professional development.

This book covers all the key topics that are important to anyone teaching ESL in Canada: cultural considerations, teaching methods, lesson planning, skills instruction, assessment, and using technology in the classroom. Teaching ESL in Canada guides the reader through numerous classroom scenarios that are common in our multicultural Canadian classrooms, giving them the opportunity to hone their teaching and problem-solving skills. Written by experts in the field of language learning and instruction; with a foreword by Jennifer Pearson Terell, former president of TESL Canada.
