teach-English-in-Canada.jpgThe upcoming ESL Week is part of efforts in Ontario to raise awareness of the importance of English language learning opportunities in Canada.

To date, a record number of 45 Ontario communities have proclaimed English as a Second Language (ESL) Week for October 20 - 26 this year. The annual celebration of ESL education and learning will take place throughout the province at this time.

Created by TESL Ontario (Teachers of English as a Second Language), ESL Week involves Ontario communities, thousands of ESL professionals, students of all ages, and many learning institutions and school boards.

For the past several years, ESL Week continues to raise awareness of the importance of ESL education for Ontarians and newcomers to Canada. According to Renate Tilson, executive director of TESL Ontario, "ESL Week enables us to thank the language training professionals who help new Canadians adapt to our culture. At the same time ESL Week acknowledges the determination of those new to our country to learn English."
