English as a Second Language (ESL) Program

The ESL program at P.D.C.I. is active in supporting our English Language Learners both academically and socially by providing a caring, attentive, and fun environment for everyone.

Who is an English Language Learner? An English Language Learner is a student whose first language is other than English or is a variety of English that is significantly different from what is used for instruction in Ontario schools.

Our students have diverse backgrounds and experiences. They may be born Canadian, but speak another language at home. Others have arrived from other countries, such as China, Japan, Spain, Senegal, Germany, and Korea. Our English Language Learners receive direct language instruction as needed in order to achieve proficiency in English.
